Linda Monahan, FOX 25 reporter John Monahan's sister, sent in video of crews rescuing the kitten. She said someone heard the cat crying and called police.
Several people can be seen trying to reach the kitten before it is finally released about 30 minutes later.
Once out of the engine, the kitten was given water before being placed in a pet carrier.
There is no word on how long the kitten was inside the engine or if it is someone's pet or a stray. It did not appear to suffer any serious injuries.
