Cat Avoids Blaze by Hiding in Couch

A cat in West Orange may have only eight lives left after it avoided a blaze that gutted part of the house it lived in by hiding in the couch.

Firefighters battling the blaze late Saturday night initially thought the feline, who belonged to one of the tenants in the two-story house, had been killed by flames and smoke. But after putting out the blaze and surveying the damage, they found the cat wedged into the couch.

"To our amazement, it had survived," Fire Chief Peter Smeraldo told The Star-Ledger of Newark for Monday's newspapers. "They should change that cat's name to Lucky."
