Longview, TX — Bobby Ray Lilly might have saved his two uncles’ lives.
Lilly stopped by early Monday morning, the day after Easter, to check on his relatives’ Longview home and he found a small fire starting near the hot water heater. He put out the fire. The smoke cleared, and his uncles went back to sleep.
About two hours later, at 7 a.m., Lilly says, “The good Lord told me to go back by there.”
It’s a good thing he did. When Lilly drove up to the home on Lambert Lane, he saw smoke coming from one uncle’s bedroom. Lilly rushed in to wake his uncles and get them out of the home. Then, a neighbor called 911.
