Captain Jeff Bruski with the Bradenton Fire Department hands a kitten to Cera Lynn Whitford, 16, after rescuing it from a tree Monday. Capt. Bruski and Engineer Jim Cutway responded to a report of a kitten in a tree just a few blocks from Station 1. A kitten was in a pine tree approximately 25 feet up and too frightened to come down on its own. Bruski was able to safely rescue the kitten within a few minutes and return it to the grateful family.
