EAU CLAIRE - Shortly after a television report, volunteers started showing up to help two disabled people keep their Eau Claire home.
A health inspector had reported the house was filled with stacks of boxes, had a strong smell of urine, there were broken windows and sinks and walls needing to be fixed. Cindy Hazelton and Mike Nelson were about to have their home condemned due to the health code violations. Then, their neighbors stepped in Friday.
One volunteer says people living in Eau Claire need to look out for each other. Hazelton and Nelson say their disabilities and fixed income make it hard for them to clean their house. They say those caring strangers answered their prayers.
