Caregiver saves couple from blaze
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A couple was saved from their burning home Monday night when their caregiver awoke to the sound of a smoke detector.
Teresa Byrd, 48, was sleeping upstairs at 202 E. Moler Ave., when she heard the alarm and rushed downstairs.
"I came down the steps and I said, 'Ray, what's going on down here?' " Byrd said.
Ray Hudspith, who relies on a wheelchair, and his wife, Eloise, who has difficulty walking, were in the downstairs kitchen watching television.
"I saw flames coming out of the bathroom," Byrd said. "I called 911 and said, 'Let's get ... out of here.' "
