It is not the first pet to be rescued by the service.

At the time, the service said: “We don't do many animal rescues and, in some cases, we can't always help - but where we can, we will.”

And in February, crews came to the aid of three cats that were trapped in a house fire on Goodwin Road, Sheffield.

On that occasion, firefighters said the cats were subsequently taken to the vets for further medical attention.

“The cats were taken to the vets and spent the night there, but have all made a full recovery,” they said.

“The fire was accidental and had involved a kitchen appliance.”
