Donna Bellis was in the right place at the right time – and she did the right thing.

That’s the word from Chris Simpson, the KCP&L lineman who responded to the scene of an emergency after Bellis made a call to the utility company’s office.

“I just saw a big blue spark, kind of in the air by the tree and the house,” said Bellis, who was delivering mail on Kice Street one day last week. “I heard the pop, and I immediately turned, and that’s when I saw the spark.”

The complete story is in the Friday, Feb. 12, 2016 Richmond News.
