Chili Honors Heroes Who Saved Fire Victims
The Chili Town Board recognized the quick actions of the people credited with helping the victims of a fire on Golden Road in January.
Monroe County Sheriff's deputies say a postal worker saw black smoke coming from the back of the home and called 911. Firefighters rescued Kaitlyn Ogg, Kaitlyn's children RJ Lockwood, four, and Mara Ogg, seven months and her mother, Judy Ogg, 67.
The board honored first responders and the postal worker for going above and beyond the call of duty. Husband and father Joseph Ogg says without these people his family would not be here today.
"They just do incredible work and my family is here today because of those people in that room. They would not be here otherwise. I would be at work, and I would be alone," said Joseph Ogg.
RJ and Judy have since been released from Strong. Kaitlyn Ogg, 25 and Mara remain at the hospital in satisfactory condition.
Investigators have ruled the cause of the fire undetermined, but not suspicious.
