Man Injured in Wednesday’s Fatal Fire on Houser Street Remains in Critical Condition

(WDEF) The adult male rescued by firefighters from Wednesday’s fatal fire at 220 Houser Street remains in critical condition Friday in the burn unit at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Saturday. He has been identified as Randall Lockhart. He is 41.
        His wife, Candy, succumbed to her severe injuries a few hours after she was pulled out of the burning house. The couple’s three children escaped the fire with minor injuries. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
        The Chattanooga Firefighters Association – Local 820 is covering some of the burial costs, but the family will need additional help in the weeks and months to come. The family is mainly in need of gift cards so they can buy clothes and other necessary items to replace what was lost in the fire.
        The Lockharts attended the One Accord Community Church, located at 501 Sweetland Drive, Red Bank, TN, 37415. The church and staff are coordinating help for the family. Anyone wishing to help this family can send monetary donations to the One Accord Community Church, with Candy Lockhart’s name in the memo line. If you have any questions about what’s needed, contact Pastor Ray Williams with the One Accord Community Church.
