Thanks Kris-you read my mind after I heard Station 9 go screaming by my house about 15 minutes ago.

I was the neighbor who called 911. I smelled smoke and heard a smoke detector, and upon going outside saw smoke billowing out of my neighbor's home. She recently lost her husband and I knew she could be in the house alone. She was disoriented standing in the doorway. I called 911 and shuffled her off to safety with the help of my 9 year old son and another neighbor. Thank God she's ok, but this woman needs prayers. After just losing her husband a few weeks ago and now her home? I'm just thankful she is safe.
