Woman Talks One Year After Fire Destroys Home

It's a day Delhi Township resident Adrienne Bradley will never forget.

On October 30 2012 she was pulled out of her mobile home, while it was filling with smoke and flames.

Four people jumped in to pull her to safety, but not before she suffered severe burns, forcing her legs to be amputated.

But as our Nick Perreault explains, she may have lost her legs, but not her will to live.

"I was taking a nap, I woke up and noticed there was smoke coming from the bed," said Adrienne Bradley.

 Adrienne Bradley says the smoke quickly turned to flames with no way out, but a tiny bedroom window.

"I still get a little misty from time to time," said Ricky Kramer

Her boyfriend Ricky was just outside the trailer, but the flames were too intense to go back inside.

"I remember some terrible screaming and I couldn't get her out," Ricky said.

Luckily four other people were able to get her out alive.

"I lost everything in that fire, my clothes everything," Adrienne said.

Everything including her legs.

She's spent close to 6 months hooked up to machines around the clock, keeping her alive and helping her breathe and eat.

She's now at a facility in Jackson where she's spent hundreds of hours of rehab to get to this point.

"I don't want people to just do everything for me," Adrienne said.

Adrienne admits is a little scary and sad, but she remains hopeful it will get better.

The one year anniversary also allowed Adrienne to connect with Adam Shue, one of those who helped pull her to safety.

"You have a lovely smile, you seem like a lovely person, you just have to stay positive," Shue told her over the phone.

For the past few months, Adrienne's been working with prosthetics and with progress, those at the rehabilitation center say hopefully she'll be able to go home by December 1st.

"If it hadn't been for the three boys and the lady, I don't know, but I'm thankful they were there," Ricky said.
