It was almost six weeks of hospitalization for Dana Truitt who is now home after suffering severe burns and undergoing skin grafts from the injuries she received in the fire at St. Paul’s by the Sea Church in Ocean City.

That blaze left the Pastor David Dingwall dead after John Raymond Sterner came into the church with his clothes on fire from an apparent self-immolation.

Sterner also died in the November 26th fire.

Truitt says she has no memory of being taken from the scene or the time she spent at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.
