Waveland fire victim finds blessings amid the rubble

WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - A house fire in Waveland Tuesday afternoon gutted a home on Morris Street. Fortunately, the disabled homeowner was not there when the fire started.

Ernest Saucier only has one leg. His niece and caretaker, Bobbie Saucier, escaped the blaze. She said it was a blessing that her uncle was at a doctor's appointment because she never would have been able to get him out of the home. Mr. Saucier weighs more than 400 pounds.

Al Showers has their story tonight on WLOX News Now at 6pm.
