Heath Evingham grabbed a garden hose and began putting out the burning debris falling on Deanna and David Johnston's home. Johnston's home was directly downwind from the blaze and would have caught fire if not for Heath. Heath stayed in the front yard of the Johnson's home throughout the fire and intense heat with a garden hose, putting out the small fires as they came down and kept the house watered down.Bill Simpson, was also able to fight the heat and flying embers get to Mrs Miller's car and summon the help of others, to help push Mrs Miller's new car out of harm's way and save it from burning.And through all the destruction, the American Flag and U.S. Marine's flag stand through the flames.Joseph Miller is a retired Vietnam Combat Veteran.
More pictures will be posted later. Thank you Bonnie for sending these pictures.

If you could say a few words about their good neighbors........
Heroes in Oswayo's eyes.
Heath Evingham, Deanna Johnston and Bill Simpson.
Deanna Johnston alerted Mrs Miller that the house was on fire and escorted her to safety.
