House fire kills Gore Springs man

Staff Writer

  A Gore Springs man died in a house fire Tuesday.
   Officials said that Lester Williams, 62, died in a fire that consumed his home at 315 Betty Road in the Sheridan Subdivision.  
  Shortly after 11 a.m., neighbor Mike Fleming heard a commotion and rushed out of his house to help.
  “I knew there was a disabled man in the house, so I tried to do whatever I could,” said Fleming, 53, a retired police chief from Derma.
  Fleming pulled a garden hose to the scene, then ran around back of the house and broke out a window to try and get to Williams.
