    Correction: While all the neighbors gawked at the burning home, Jim Wick, an Employee of the State run transitional facility “Parson House” sprang into action!!! Milwaukee’s version of Clark Kent, Jim did not hesitate and risked life and limb to save the elderly woman from a cooking fiasco!! We salute you Jim!!!
