Senior citizen needs help with electrical work, porch

SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan senior citizen needs your help as she fears her home may go up in flames because of shoddy electricity work.

"The fixture here, I have black tape on that so that it won't be used," said Patricia Lamar, Saginaw resident.

She has taped up electrical outlets and switches inside her Saginaw home. The senior citizen has a very good reason for doing so.

It's an inconvenience for her to cover up her outlets, but her biggest fear is that a fire could break out in her home.

Lamar has lived in the house since 1971. She had some electrical work done a few years later, but she fears the person who did the work really didn't know what they were doing.

Meanwhile, Lamar also could use some help with her porch. The railing and base are in pretty rough shape, so much so that she won't use the front door.

Lamar would appreciate it if someone could contact the Rescue Squad to give her a hand.
