Quick thinking from a young man in Willisburg prevented what could have been a tragedy last Tuesday night.

Doris Stone said she was watching television around 9:30 p.m. when a loud crash caused her dog to start barking. Stone’s 15-year-old grandson, Waylon Stone, was staying with her that evening and got up to investigate. He soon realized that a tree had fallen close the house and ignited.

Doris Stone said she has problems hearing, and didn’t even realize the tree had fallen.
