SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, MI (WNEM) -

Delma Draine has lived in her home in Saginaw since 1971. 

"Right around the chimney is where it's so bad at, around the chimney," Draine said.

The 82-year-old’s husband passed away 26 years ago.  She hopes someone can help stop the rain from entering the inside of her house thanks to some problems around the chimney.

In one bedroom, the paint is peeling back from the water that’s coming in through the leak in the roof.

A friend tried to patch over leaks in Draine's bedroom.

"The neighbor next door, he fixed it, the best he could," Draine said.

Under the roofline, water is getting through. The situation started five years ago.

Draine said she hopes someone can join the Rescue Squad and give her a hand so that she won't have to worry about the interior of her home getting destroyed.

"I saw it on the television and I got the number to call and I called you," Draine said.
