Family gets more time to clean woman's home

The Webster Parish Police Jury has approved giving an elderly woman's family until Sept. 1 to clean her mobile home or see it condemned.

Betty Johnson's home was targeted for condemnation after an ambulance call during which ammonia from cat urine caused one crew member to faint and made another nauseated.

The Times reports that her daughter Cheryl Magee asked Tuesday for extra time to clean it.

The police jury decided anyone who goes into the mobile home must sign a statement releasing the parish from health liability, and a hazmat team will inspect it before Sept. 1.

After the ambulance call, authorities seized 25 cats - most from Johnson's home - and 21 dogs, most from the next-door home of her daughter Cecile Stone and her husband.
