Couple Injured In Fire
An elderly Macon County couple is taken to the hospital after their home goes up in flames. The fire broke out around 8:30 a.m. Thursday on Hickory Knoll Road in Otto.
A neighbor says Bill and Ann Morris were burned while trying to escape. He says the couple kept to themselves, and that their home was packed with various items.
"The house was so full of debris inside for living conditions, it was very hard and everything was plastic so there's not going to be nothing left," says Richard Hasle.
Hasle believes the fire started in the fireplace. But the exact cause has not been determined.
The Morris' are listed in stable condition at Angel Medical Center in Franklin.
