THREE kittens have had a lucky escape after being rescued from a bushfire near Byfield.

The kittens, which are three weeks old, were saved by a member of the rural fire brigade on Friday.

A spokeswoman from Capricorn Animal Aid said they weren't sure if the mother had abandoned the kittens in the bush, or how they arrived there.

Capricorn Animal Aid will now give the kittens vet treatment, including vaccinations, desexing and micro chipping, before they go to a new home.
