Last Monday, December 29, Kathie Willerton and her daughter Amy Guillen (Adrian Class of 1994) left Adrian for an appointment, lunch and shopping.  What they didn’t expect that day was to return to Kathie’s house only to find three family members near death.  When they opened the door to the house, their eyes burned instantly.  Jack, Derald and Lucas were lethargic, disoriented and unable to move.  They called the Adrian Fire Department and immediately began getting them out of the house.
