ARBOR VITAE - Nearly two weeks ago, two homes in Woodruff could've been destroyed by fire. Even worse, someone could have been hurt or killed. However, thanks to the quick thinking of a 7-year-old, two homes are standing, with very little damage.
On Wednesday, members of the Woodruff fire and police departments honored Arbor Vitae-Woodruff Elementary student Sloane Timmerman for her courage and compassion.
"We got a call that said there was a fire burning in one of the walls of a building," Woodruff Police Officer Timothy Cerny explained to the crowd gathered for an assembly.
