Mother, Oakwood officer help save wheelchair-bound man from fire
A fire was reported about 6 a.m. Monday on the 4200 block of Shawnee Drive in Oakwood.
An early-morning fire Monday in Oakwood left an elderly woman and her adult son, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, without their home of eight years — and most everything else. But as Brenda Masters nursed a burned hand she suffered trying to put out the fire, she said she was grateful that she, her son and two dogs were alive. “It’s hurting me some, but I feel lucky,” she said Monday afternoon.
