BK fire victim reunited with beloved cat

BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn fire victim had an emotional reunion today after spending days without his beloved cat.

According to Wright Gillette, he was banned from searching for the 3-year-old feline at the site of Saturday's deadly fire on East 29th Street because officials said the building was not safe.

However, firefighters were able to rescue the cat, who first hid in a closet and then under a bed in the fire-ravaged apartment.

Gillette says she didn't suffer any injuries.
