    Chief: 8-year-old 'saved those other 6 people'
    Jon Hand, Staff writer 10:12 p.m. EST January 20, 2014


    ...It was in the back bedroom of that small, single-wide trailer at 39 Fondiller Ave. that firefighters found Tyler's body Monday morning, just a few feet away from the bed of his disabled Uncle Steve, who investigators believe Tyler was trying to save...

    How sad. I can't imagine the grief.

    This happened about 5 miles from where I live. :sigh:

    "...Family of young fire hero Tyler Doohan, who died saving loved ones, now fighting over fundraiser money..."
    www.foxnews.com/us/2014/01/23/trage...ly-young-hero-argues-over-donations/#comments

    Sad what money does to people. From the article, sounds like the boy's mother did not even live there ; and a friend of the mother's set up the "YouCaring.com." account.
    Now they are fighting over it.
    ---- Not that it would be a bad thing if she really bought a decent house ; and the funds aren't wasted.

    MOO
