Nyssa couple escapes burning house

NYSSA – A Nyssa couple lost everything in a predawn fire Sunday morning that destroyed their home.

On Sunday, Oct. 6, David and Tonya Bunker fled their house that sits on their property at 2705 Heritage Dr. in Nyssa as it burned to the ground due to an electrical fire.

The couple was able to snatch their most valuable possessions in the short time they had before the house was engulfed in flames.  

“We had four to five minutes and that’s all we had,” Bunker said Monday. 

“From the time that I got up and saw the flames to the time my wife and I had to go outside was about five minutes. We grabbed a couple of things that were important, and threw a couple of things out the window," Bunker said.
