Close Call For Sherman Man When Fire Burns Shed

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX -- Scary moments for a Sherman man when he thought he might lose his house.

Around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday, resident Tracey Briscoe says he woke up to find flames coming from a storage shed behind his house in the 2500 block of North Hickory near Lamberth.

The shed is a ways behind the house, but the fire was spreading up into the trees, and he called the fire department to put the fire out.

"I was just getting up putting the coffee pot on and go look outside," says Briscoe. "It's all my stuff back there, you know, like movies and TVs, stuff like that."

Firefighters showed up several minutes later and made quick work of the blaze, spraying it with foam, Briscoe said. No one was hurt.

    TMC launches new neuro-intervention suite

    DENISON, TX -- Treating neurological conditions like stroke, blood clots, and ruptured brain aneurysms is all about time. Vivek H. Tank, MD, an Interventional Neurologist on TMC's medical staff said, "Prior to having this room installed here, we had to ship the patients down to the other hospitals by helicopter. That was delaying treatment times by at least an hour and a half. So ninety minutes extra time where the brain was starved of oxygen leads to poorer outcomes."...More >>
