    If it wasn’t for the quick thinking of Matt Pelkey, the owner of the house that was also damaged. Got the wife Sharon out first but, she kept trying to go back in for her husband George. Matt had a passerby hold her. He then found George trying to get back in threw the back doors to get his wife. This is where Matt found him. So many things could have happened. Thanks to Matt everybody is fine.
