MILTON, W.Va. (September 9, 2013)--When a West Virginia home caught fire, trapping a kitten inside, two men dressed as Batman and Captain America came to the rescue.
John Buckland, dressed as Batman, and Troy Marcum, dressed as Captain America, spotted the smoke at a nearby house while they were entertaining children as part of their business.
They ran to the house along with another bystander, kicked in the door and broke out a window so some smoke could escape.
Buckland, a former firefighter, said he crawled into the front room and felt something furry.
He grabbed the animal, ran outside and gave it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
No one was hurt in the fire, including the rescuers, although Buckland says the cat hissed and swatted at him when it regained consciousness.
