So much heart melting.   (Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue/Twitter)

(Newser) – "There was heavy smoke in there, so the fact that they survived is pretty remarkable," says a fire official after a kitten and snake were rescued from a cooking fire at an apartment in Washington state on Monday. Firefighters initially pulled two dogs from the fire, one of whom later died. It was 45 minutes before they returned to search the blaze again, doubtful of finding any more creatures alive, reports People. But Velcro the kitten and Snakey the snake, housed separately in a carrier and tank, appear to have beaten the odds. Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue says the two animals were saved and taken to a vet for checkups, per KOMO—after 10-week-old Velcro took in some oxygen from a mask. (Read more uplifting news stories.)
