A two-pound ball of fur kept firefighters, a news crew and a taxi driver busy for hours Monday night.

It started when a taxi driver in San Diego heard a noise coming from the engine of his car.

He opened the hood and saw a kitten.

The driver couldn’t reach her so he called 911.

By the time firefighters arrived, a TV news crew was there too.

Rescuers used the photographer’s camera tripod to hold up the cab’s hood as well as his camera light to keep an eye the kitten.

After seven hours they finally got her out safely.

It’s still not known how the cat ended up in the engine, or how long she had been there before being discovered by the driver.
