Neighbor saves woman as house burns
Wednesday blaze destroys Hunters Pointe home
Statesboro Fire
A Statesboro family lost a home to fire Wednesday night, but fast-acting neighbors saved a woman's life. Vinny Castellano saw smoke coming from his neighbor's home on Brittany Lane in Hunters Pointe subdivision at around 8 p.m. Wednesday, and both he and a man he knew only by the name "Rusty" kicked in the doors and rescued one of the home owners. Les Kicklighter told Statesboro firefighters he had been "doing some grinding" in his garage, then left home briefly, Statesboro Fire Chief Tim Grams said.
