When Edward Jones pulled up to his Gardnersville Road home on May 11, flames were bellowing out of the front and side windows.
Minutes before, he had received a call from his wife, Cheryl, that the house was on fire while unloading materials at a job site in Williamstown.
“I jumped in the car and went about 80 miles per hour all the way there,” Jones said. “It’s a wonder I didn’t get a ticket.”
Jones said his wife, who was home alone, turned on the stove to heat it up and got in the shower because her back was hurting.
