Janet Le was on her way to work when she heard the sound of a kitten meowing from somewhere inside her SUV.

"I drove to a gas station and heard a cat meowing but I didn't see anything," Le said

Le drove to a Santa Ana fire station for help.

One of the firefighters was a former mechanic, so he took apart the SUV and found the kitten stuck in the fender well near the car battery.

It was safely rescued and is now being put up for adoption.
