Smoke Alarm Saves Couple In Defiance

A smoke alarm that went off Sun­day night is being cred­ited with quite pos­si­bly sav­ing the lives of Sandy and Jim Hol­ley of Defi­ance. The Holley’s say neigh­bors were pound­ing on their front door to let them know that the house was on fire just after 11 Sun­day night. The cou­ple grabbed their pets and safely got out of the house, where they said that even as they ran, there was still no vis­i­ble smoke inside. They also say that they were lucky to escape with only the clothes on their backs, as the flames spread quickly. The fire took hours to extin­guish, and now the cou­ple is stay­ing at a motel as they search for another place to live. They were unable to save any­thing, so they need every­thing, includ­ing cloth­ing. If you can help out, con­tact the Red Cross at 419–329-2900. To make a mon­e­tary dona­tion on their behalf, con­tact the Red Cross or Hunt­ing­ton Bank. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
