Cat, woman reunited after fire, rescue, revival, and search

Fire roared through one three-decker and leapt to another and another, and smoke and flame began to overtake the apartment where Modupe Oshikoya’s constant companion, a cat named Rosie, was trapped.

That night two weeks ago, a firefighter spotted the limp animal among the chaos, scooped her up, and brought her to safety. An emergency medical technician put an oxygen mask over her face and revived her. The firefighter lifted the cat into the cab of a fire truck, where it would be safe until ­reunited with her owner, a student who had come from London just months before.
