New bride Georgette Clemons has been lauded a heroine after rushing into a burning home to save a family. The unusual rescue was compounded by the fact that Clemons had been married to Georgette Fogary just hours before and was leaving her wedding at the time.
Being driven away from the reception with her new husband Charles, Clemons caught sight of smoke coming out of the burning home. Her driver said: "Georgette got out in her wedding dress and ran toward the front door."
Later, as she folded up her ruined dress at the scene, she stated simply, "It's been an eventful day." She had seen someone inside and refused to let them stay in the house. Family pets were also rescued. It is unclear how the fire started.
