A family of five is working to salvage their belongings after a weekend fire in Fort Pierce.


The fire occured in the 100 block of Maple Drive in Fort Pierce.






FORT PIERCE, Fla. – A Fort Pierce family is without a home after a fire engulfed the back part of the home on Sunday morning. 

The family of five have been in and out of the home trying to salvage what they can.

Fire crews responded to the 100 block of Maple Avenue a little after 10 a.m.

When they got to the scene they found a fire that started in the backroom and extended into the attic. 

Nehemiah McPherson told WPTV he was in the home sleeping when the fire started.

“I just heard my grandma screaming my name,” he said.

A next door neighbor told WPTV the fire caused a lot of smoke. 

Bob Williams says he thought the family was grilling in the backyard, but when he stepped outside he realized a fire was spreading.

“When I got back a little further I seen the smoke rolling out the back of the house next door,” he said. “You could see the flames and the smoke.”

McPherson was able to get his grandmother out of the home. He said his mom, sister and step dad were running errands when the fire started. 

The family told WPTV coming back to a destroyed home was difficult, but they’re happy they have each other.

“It’s a blessing to be alive,” McPherson said.”I could have been in there, still sleep.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. A family member told WPTV they are staying in a hotel.

Fort Pierce Central’s 2018 football schedule

Fort Pierce Central’s 2018 football schedule

Aug 17: TBA (Kickoff Classic)

Aug. 24: at Lyman, 7 p.m.

Aug. 31: at South Fork, 7 p.m.

Sept. 7: Bye

Sept. 14: Martin County, 7 p.m.

Sept. 22: vs. Fort Pierce Westwood, 10 a.m.

Sept. 27: Treasure Coast*, 6 p.m.

Oct. 5: at Jensen Beach, 7 p.m.

Oct. 12: at St. Lucie West Centennial*, 7 pm.

Oct 19: Sebastian River, 7 p.m.

Oct. 26: at Vero Beach*, 7 p.m.

Nov. 1: Melbourne Central Catholic, 6 p.m.

* District 8-8A opponent

3-and-out

  • It’s disappointing to see Showdown 39 still scheduled for a Saturday morning. School officials said last year that the game was being moved so more alumni could attend, but it seemed to be a reaction to the events of 2016 when the stadium had to be evacuated after a fight broke out on the home sidelines, causing a panic. The reality is the stadium was pretty empty last year. Showdown, arguably the Treasure Coast’s best rivalry, deserves to be played under the lights. It would be a better atmosphere for the players and the fans.
  • The Cobras season could largely hang on what happens during that six-day stretch from Sept. 22-27. Westwood and Treasure Coast both are rivalry games. The Treasure Coast game is the first District 8-8A game. Win both of these games and Central should be playing with a lot of confidence heading into the second half of the season. Losing could have the opposite effect. Cobras coach Brad Paulson did a nice job of keeping the team playing hard after early season struggles last fall, but certainly will want a better start to 2018.
  • For the first time since 2013, the Cobras will play long-time rival Martin County. These teams saw a lot of each other in the years before the break as they played in the regular season and regional semifinals in 2011 and 2012. County took Central off the schedule as the Cobras emerged as a state power earlier this decade, but the teams should be more closely matched this year.

Farewell to crusader for federal courthouse in Fort Pierce | Anthony Westbury

Humble.

If I had to choose one word to describe four-time former mayor of Fort Pierce William Dannahower, who died Thursday at age 90, that’s what it would be.

Dannahower, whose public service spanned five decades, was quiet and mild-mannered. Yet he was relentless in getting things done in the community.

A longtime dentist, Dannahower was affectionately known as “Doc” by generations of Fort Pierce residents.

If at first he wasn’t successful, “Doc” would plug away at a problem until he achieved success.

That certainly was the case with his campaign to bring a federal courthouse to Fort Pierce. It became a drawn-out slog that took 25 years of quiet persuasion on Dannahower’s part to bring the project to fruition. His contribution to getting the building for his hometown was commemorated in 2012 when the atrium was named after him.

Even after Dannahower left elected office in 1995, his successor Mayor Eddie Enns had appointed “Doc” to a task force to bring the courthouse home.

Dannahower previously had worked to keep other major public buildings in downtown Fort Pierce. He fought to keep the county courthouse and state Department of Children Families building here, rather than allowing their relocation to Port St. Lucie.

“He deeply cared for Fort Pierce,” current Mayor Linda Hudson noted this week.  “He was our longest-serving mayor, but it was not only the length but the quality of service that we remember.”

St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara concurred. 

“I’ve known Doc for a long, long time. He mentored me during my first run as sheriff, and I always looked up to him. He was a visionary who loved Fort Pierce. He always wanted the best for the city,” Mascara said.

Dannahower practiced dentistry in Fort Pierce for 30 years until he closed his practice in the late 1980s. He was a city commissioner in 1963 when the vote to add fluoride to city water was approved, the first city on the Treasure Coast to do so. 

“The basic reason was that it was extremely well-proven that an adequate amount of fluoride in the drinking water reduced tooth decay in developing teeth by two-thirds,” Dannahower told a reporter in 2005, “and that it’s perfectly safe. The benefits continue throughout life.”

Fluoride opponents slapped Fort Pierce with an injunction after the vote. The suit was eventually overturned on appeal. Dannahower recalled opponents also claimed fluoridation of water was part of a plot by the Aluminum Company of America to get rid of a waste product.

“We had a scorching letter from the company that put that claim to rest,” the former dentist recalled.

Dannahower served on the Florida State Board of Dentistry for 12 years, including two terms as chairman.

He served a broad range of community organizations including the Workforce Development Board of the Treasure Coast, Children’s Medical Services Network and the U.S. Department of Housing Urban Development.

Dannahower also spent countless hours working on behalf of the Boys Girls Club, Kiwanis, Jaycees and the Salvation Army.  Boy Scouts of America was an organization especially close to his heart. He became an Eagle Scout in the early years of World War II.

“There wasn’t much to do in Fort Pierce at that time,” he told reporter Tyler Treadway in a 2006 story. “The beaches were closed and the movie theaters were pretty much filled up with guys from the (UDT training) base. I enjoyed the Scouts because I got to go places and do things I otherwise wouldn’t get to do.”

Four of his family members subsequently followed “Doc” as Eagle Scouts. When his grandson Ian Nunn achieved the honor in 2006, Dannahower noted “one thing I got out of it, and something I think kids today get out of it, is a sense of obligation for service.”

Service was William Dannahower’s watchword. He served his hometown immaculately for a half century and was rightly revered for doing so.

One indication of how much “Doc” meant to his community was the response to a birthday card campaign one of his caregivers, Judy Case, arranged in July for his 90th birthday.

“At his age,” Case told me, “he doesn’t want gifts; he has everything he needs. But he lives for that mail.”

She recalled one day a few weeks before his birthday when the mailbox at his Indian River Drive home had been completely empty.

“There must be something wrong!” an agitated Dannahower told Case.  “I must call the Post Office and find out what happened.”

So Case persuaded old friends and colleagues to mail as many birthday cards as possible to “Doc” before his big day. She’d hoped for 90 cards, but the final tally was 151 from all over the Treasure Coast, Florida and across the country.

It was a small example of the respect and love that gentle William Dannahower encouraged in people from all walks of life.

May he rest in peace. He has served us well.

99-year-old driver in fatal crash had clean record, recently passed driving tests

He was tested after the Michigan Secretary of State’s office was contacted by a person in September 2017. That person said Roney could no longer drive safely because of medical reasons, said Fred Woodhams, spokesman for the office.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
