Woman Loses Home, Can't Get Air Conditioning In New Home

Temperatures outside Wednesday reached 100 degrees in some parts of the east. While most of us can run inside our homes for air conditioning to get relief, one woman has been sweating out the summer without it.

In 2008 Sara Jiminez lost her home and business to a fire. Now she's starting over again and living in a home in Beaufort county with no air conditioning. Even with windows open Wednesday, there was no breeze.

Sara says she does what she can to avoid being home when it's this hot.

"Very hot. I don't have electricity. I don't have water," said Jiminez.

Originally Sara thought she had all the correct permits, but it turns out she does not, but says she is working to get things straight with the county.
