Carrie Gann, 45, was critically injured when her house at 111 Centro Street was engulfed in flames early in the morning on September 20, 2017. She was trapped in her bedroom, but three Chattanooga firefighters found her and carried her out. Even with the expert care she received on the scene, and at Erlanger Medical Center and the burn center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, her survival was in doubt. Her two pet dogs perished in the blaze, but Carrie did survive, and now she would like to meet her rescuers. We have made the arrangements and this reunion will take place at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 9th, at Fire Station 20, located at 3003 Cummings Highway in Lookout Valley. You are invited to cover this reunion.
