Victims displaced by Chili fire continue to recover | News
Two of the four victims injured in a Chili house fire last month continue to recuperate.
Meanwhile, the other two victims have been discharged from Strong Memorial Hospital. Kaitlyn Ogg, 24, and her daughter, seven-month-old Mara Ogg, are still in guarded condition. Kaitlyn's mother-in-law, Judith Ogg, 67, and her son, R.J. Lockwood, 4, have gone home.
The fire occurred at 107 Golden Road. The victims were rescued in part by Barbara Langdon, a U.S. postal service worker who noticed Judith Ogg hanging from the window of the burning home. Chili Fire Department firefighters rescued Kaitlyn Ogg and the children.
The family released a statement of gratitude earlier this month.
"The Ogg Family would like to thank the community for all the thoughts and prayers for Judy, Katie, Mara and R.J.," it read. "We appreciate privacy while we focus on our family."
In the wake of the tragedy, which destroyed the family's home, various groups have started collections. They include Joseph Ogg's employer, Monroe Tech, which is located at 53 South Ave., Hilton. Call 392-8324 for more information. Parma Christian Fellowship Church, located at 590 North Ave, Hilton, is also helping. Call 392-5792 for more information.
