It was just after 9am on September 29 when Bernadine Worsdale looked out of her window to see smoke billowing from the property next door. She sprinted outside in her pyjamas and saw another neighbour running towards her, who phoned 111. “I was focusing on my neighbour and thinking get him out,” said Mrs Worsdale. Mrs Worsdale ran to the front window of the burning house on Scott St. She pulled it ajar before yelling for her neighbour, who she didn’t wish to name. “I think he was sleeping, if I hadn’t of known his name, he may have not woken up and responded . . . it was so intense, I hate fire, the heat was unbearable.” He appeared a bit “dazed and confused,” said Mrs Worsdale who then helped to pull him out of the window. “I tried to get him to jump but he couldn’t. I pulled him from under the armpits and dragged him out of the window.” •Turn to page 4 This Weekend!
