Oak Park Fire Fighter Receives Recognition
Mike Williams, a firefighter who is stationed at Ventura County Fire Department Station 36 in Oak Park, has been recognized by his community as a local hero. Although some homes were lost in the Oak Park neighborhood where Williams resides, the damage would have been much worse without his help. Williams and his wife, Lisa, saved homes of their neighbors, only to see their own house burn down to a total loss.
Following the fire, both Mike and Lisa Williams received a commendation on behalf of the Oak Park High School volleyball team at the team’s annual banquet. The program named them honorary team MVPs for their assistance to the community during the Woolsey Fire. Additionally, Calabasas residents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West surprised the couple with a $100,000 donation to help rebuild their home on The Ellen Show.
