It could have been worse. Much worse.
City councilman Bobby Durr narrowly escaped serious injury when his garage at 1031 Indian Trail caught fire Saturday afternoon while he was working to repair his lawnmower.
“I was very blessed to get out,” Durr said following the fire that singed his hands, eyebrows and hair. “I could have been very easily laying in the funeral home.”
Contacted Monday by phone, Durr said he was OK and thankful that he wasn’t seriously injured.
