Lohse was finishing up his report on the 800-acre blaze when the camera zooms in behind him and firefighters are seen carrying a tiny black kitten in a white blanket from out of the woods.  

'Look at that! Not only did they put out the fire, but we just had the rescue here. How about that - that's a great story,' says Lohse.

No word on the kitten's condition or if its new name will be 'Six-Pack.'
