By Lois Lumbra — Theresa Begnoche called me with this news: Wednesday evening her door bell was ringing repeatedly, and someone was knocking at her door also. She went to the door to see what was going on and she did not recognize Paul Chauvin as the person needing help. He said that there was a fire next door and asked Theresa for help. She looked out her window and did notice there was a fire in the wood pile at her neighbors.
