Once parked back at the station on Osage and JFK Blvd., her driver came to her and said he heard some strange noises coming from the truck.

Lt. Pierce found four kittens nestled into the hoses, all appearing to be just about three weeks old.

"I got on the phone with the Battalion Chief and said, 'Hey I have four kittens and no one knows what to do,'" said Lt. Pierce.

Patricia Johnston, lives in North Little Rock and came to the station's rescue.

Johnston took the kittens, fed them, and is now looking for their forever home.
