On Sept. 4, 2009, a motorist helped a woman trapped by a house fire at 1428 Clifton Avenue, according to the Springfield News-Sun. "Jonna Buckner was in the upstairs apartment when the fire started and escaped to the porch roof," the newspaper said. "A passerby in a truck stopped, took the ladder off his truck and helped her get down." He left before she could thank him.
