  • Severe burns take life of retired Magnolia fire chief

    Norman Heath, 76, a long-time community volunteer and firefighter, died June 5, as a result of severe burns.

    Heath, who served as Magnolia fire chief for a number of years, was injured at his home on Upton Road early Thursday. 

    His daughter, Lorrie McCoy, said family members were taking turns checking on her father and helping him get his day started.
