A disabled woman and her son died Sunday in a house fire in Rockdale County. “She was screaming, ‘Help! Help! Help!’ I kept telling her to keep yelling cause I was going to try and find her through the sound of her voice,” neighbor Anthony Reagan told Channel 2 Action News. “But I couldn’t see. It was so much smoke.” Zach Dawson, another neighbor, saw the woman’s son with a water hose in the yard. He ran over to the home on Spring Street, took the hose from the man and urged him to go back inside the residence to save his mom, the news station reported. The son did just that. "Gotta get your mom out,” Dawson said he told the man. "She’s in the front of the house. The fire hadn’t moved at that point.”Witnesses said the fire appeared to be contained until people started breaking windows to get inside.
