Pat Brice has been praying for Helen and Ronald Wright since they were hurt in a house fire Thursday.
Brice has power of attorney for Helen, 65, and Ronald, 68, and has known the couple for about 20 years. She helps take care of the couple, and has become like a family member to them.
Brice, 53, lives about four houses away from the Wrights on Charlotte Highway. She was shocked to hear that their home caught fire Thursday about 5 p.m.
