INDIANAPOLIS — A missing family cat has been rescued from the ruins of a home near the center of the deadly Indianapolis house explosion.

Fire Capt. Rita Burris says the black cat named Gidget had been missing since the fiery blast late Saturday night.

A federal investigator found Gidget on Friday hiding behind a couch in the home of her owners, Glenn and Gloria Olvey. Burris says the cat was scared but otherwise in good condition. The Olveys had already recovered their other three pets.

The family lives next door to the house where the blast is believed to have originated.

Glenn Olvey says the blast hurled him several feet and trapped him, his wife and one of their two teenage daughters when their roof collapsed.

Shelters are temporarily housing several recovered pets.
