House fire leaves Cornell woman out in the cold
By Ginna Young
On a frigid morning Jan. 26, tragedy struck at the home of Janice Pope at 113 South Seventh Street in Cornell. That morning, a fire believed to have started in the area of the dryer, ignited, and while Pope and her dog made it out safely, the structure wasn’t so lucky.
“It spread quickly through the house,” said Cornell Fire Chief Denny Klass, adding that there was extensive fire, smoke and water damage to the structure. “It’s uninhabitable. I don’t know what they’re going to do with it, but they can’t live in it the way it is.”
