Yes , two passers by seen the smoke coming from the house and they had pulled the victim out thru the back door , then a neighbor had done Cpr along with the rescuers . The Deputy was there but he should speak up and make it clear that two men risk there lives to save a man . Mr.Shelton made his statement on his own to make his Department look good . He should of made his statement along side of the fire marshal instead of doing it behind scenes . Just aggravates me that these individuals didnt get any recognition for there heroic efforts , and every where you turn you see a story about a Deputy risking his life. Like I said he was there and helped but but no shape or form was his life in danger.

Read the second page of the paper the day after the fire. The deputy responded and said that citizens from coalwood assisted. And gave them credit also. Just to bad it didn't get on the front page where everyone could see it.
