TOWN OF POUGHKEEPSIE – Fairview firefighters responded to a report of a person passed out on a stone wall near the intersection of Violet and Bahret Avenues Wednesday morning.  Upon arrival to the scene a few hundred yards away from the firehouse, Firefighters found a female bent over near the stone wall.

According to firefighters, the woman was in fine health and was merely attempting to rescue a kitten that was stuck in between the stones of the wall.  Her attempts had been unsuccessful and the firefighters went to work to free the feline.
