Cat fleeing fire survives five-storey jump, walks off

CHICAGO (AP) – A Chicago cat may now have eight lives after jumping out of a fifth-floor window to escape an apartment fire. Chicago Fire Department personnel were taking a video of the exterior of the building as firefighters were extinguishing the blaze when a black cat appeared through billowing smoke at a broken window. The fire-fleeing feline briefly tested the side of the building with its front paws, and then jumped. More details in Sunday’s Borneo Bulletin.
