On Aug. 17 Nowthen residents Steve and Sandy Thompson suffered the loss of Steve’s business to a fire. True to Steve’s dedication to his customers, he risked his life removing their vehicles from the building. Doing so he suffered major burns and underwent numerous surgeries. Steve will need additional surgery and physical therapy.
