Chuck Leahy heard the commotion early Monday evening, shouts of a fire.
He then peered out the back of his father-in-law’s house in Rainbow Springs Country Club Estates, seeing flames shooting through the kitchen area of the house.
So Leahy ran outside, checking the burning structure for a garden hose, or other water source, to no avail. Knowing Catherine Steinmetz was inside, he and another eyewitness checked the front door. It was still cool to the touch, so they kicked it in.
