One person died in a fire near 1900 E. Marshall on Thursday afternoon.
TFD Spokesman, Captain Stan May, says they received multiple calls around 1 p.m.
“Upon arrival there was heavy smoke and flames coming out of the home,” said Captain May.
Fire officials tell us two people were inside the home when the fire began. One person was able to escape. The other victim, an elderly woman, was found dead inside of the home.
Fire officials tell us the roof collapsed on the home. Crews worked to contain the fire but the residence is a complete loss.
Fire investigators say the fire was caused by an electrical issue.
