Residents and condo owners from the 11-West condos in Sunrise Beach continue to re-group and get on with life after fire destroyed several units and damaged others over Labor Day Weekend. The night, however, could’ve been a lot worse if it weren’t for the quick actions of some of the residents such as Brad Gilchrist. Gilchrist, who went door-to-door alerting some and helping others get to safety, says,looking back,the reality of what happened still hasn’t really sunk in.
Gilchrist was a guest on “The Ozarks Today” on KRMS along with Mindi Sales, who owns some of the units at the complex. She says the quick actions of Gilchrist and the response by several area fire departments are a shining example of some good coming out of a bad situation.
Other than a resident or two being disoriented from the smoke, there were no injuries reported with everybody and their pets escaping to safety.
