By  | 

Mayor Mac Watts declared August 9th to be Cody Overstreet Day and recognized him and his father for their quick actions which likely saved the home of Buddy Wicker (pictured above left). On August 1st, while the Wicker family was away on vacation, a fire began in the shop attached to the house on Conestoga. A lightning strike was the likely cause. From some distance away Cody (pictured above center), and his father saw the smoke, investigated and called 911. The fire department was able to contain the fire before it crossed the carport into the main house. The official fire department report states that the home would have likely been a total loss if not for the quick action of Cody and his father.
