Update: Family members say woman injured during fiberglass plant fire is improving

Posted:
Three people were hospitalized Tuesday after a fire at the Charleston Corporation in Bremen.  Two have been released, while family members say a third is still recovering.  Cesar Sosa says he got a call around 1:00 PM Monday, saying his sister, Candy Witt, had been injured and she was being taken to a South Bend hospital. 

Sosa says he rushed to be by her side at the hospital..  He says after he arrived, doctors told him his sister suffered from cyanide poisoning.  "She is my younger sister," he says.  "It was pretty bad."  Sosa says Witt was unable to talk when he first saw her in the hospital.  "When I was there next to her bed, the doctor came in and said they were going to start the cyanide treatment and hopefully she would respond to that."

Sosa says his sister did respond positively to the treatment.  He says she is now moving around and talking to family members.  He says she didn't remember much about the fire or what happened before she was rushed to the hospital. 

The President and CEO of Charleston Corporation says there were 12 people inside the building when it caught fire.  That building, which is one of six on the property, was destroyed.

Students interviewed over 40 veterans from World War two this afternoon. Social Studies Facilitator Je...More >>
