Janice and Terry Potts said, "It hurts, now we have nothing, this is all we got this is all we have is what we have on now."
Terry says he was on his way back home when he saw black smoke and then saw the house next to his bursting with flames. That's when he started to panic.
Terry said, "He kept saying get the grass and get the trees, but the time he said that the flames had hit the window." Terry says he was frantically yelling at fire fighters to save his house. Then Terry says out of no where...
Terry says, "I got tased by police, I was tased right here, they put me in hand cuffs."
I spoke with the Monroe Police Department and they say Terry was yelling and swearing at the officer and they asked him to back up. When he refused, that's when they tased him. Firefighters admit there was a delay reaching part of the spreading fire, because a power line came down, blocking firefighters until the electricity could be shut off.
David Hill said, "You got 150 spectators in the road, you got electrical lines popping, we're trying to get everybody back so nobody gets electrocuted, we don't want to lose any firemen."
