Lima resident Cynthia Chambery, 67, passed away at Strong Memorial Hospital of injuries she suffered in a house fire on Pond Road in Lima on Tuesday, November 9.
Chambery was rescued from the home by a neighbor, Jeff Tanner, who used his tractor to break down a wall to get her out. Another resident of the home was in the garage at the time of the fire and got out safely.
The Lima Fire Department was helped by several other fire departments, including East Avon, in putting out the flames but the home was destroyed. New York State Police and Livingston County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the cause.
