Original reporting notes[edit]

  • While I'm unsure that it deserves its own follow-up article here, the following article was seen on local news, KLTV's web site this morning: "Woman, cat reunited after fire destroys apartment".....somehow, the cat survived!Buddpaul (talk) 17:36, 8 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]


Emails, Phone call transcripts, other written evidence[edit]

Interview details[edit]

  • The "Jane" mentioned is a real person.....who does live in the adjacent apartments. The quote, however, was delivered to me second-hand by my spouse (who is a friend of Jane's)......so, that obviously won't pass muster.......I will interview her by phone myself on Thursday.Buddpaul (talk) 03:25, 7 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Obviously, I'm going to use a pseudonym until I can interview her/get permission to quote her.Buddpaul (talk) 03:45, 7 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]
Telephone interview conducted today at 9:17AM (CST).....she requested anonymity.......quotes: "It was unbelievable. There were firetrucks and police cars everywhere. It was the biggest fire I've ever seen."Buddpaul (talk) 17:18, 7 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

  • Introduced self as independent journalist before In-person interview on 10-7-2010 at 9:55am with Cecile Hughston, 61 of Tyler(permission received from interviewee to use name/age): She lives approx. one block from the apartment complex......stated in interview: "I was inside my house and I could see the flames, they were stretching up toward the sky.
