Shortly before 5:30 Sunday evening, Clemons, formerly Georgette Fogary, had just been married to Charles Clemons and was being driven from Testo's restaurant where the reception was held when she spotted smoke coming from the Eitelberg's home.
Hanifah Bost, who was driving the car, said Clemons suddenly yelled, "Stop the car, stop the car."
"There was smoke coming from this house and as soon as I stopped the car, Georgette got out in her wedding dress and ran toward the front door." She said Clemons ran through the smoke into the house and she ran after her.
"I don't know what she was thinking, she had just got married," Bost said.
Clemons said she saw flames on the outside of the house and yelled for the occupants to get out. She said she could see someone inside and when they didn't come out, she ran in to get them.
"The woman was yelling about her animals and didn't want to get out so I had to pull her out," Clemons said.
The occupants, including two dogs and two ferrets, out safely, Clemons then ran next door to warn the neighbors of the fire.
"My shoes got messed up, but what are you going to do?" Clemons said later. "At least the people are OK."
