Fatal House Fire Believed To Be An Accident

(Springfield, MO) — Springfield Fire Department officials say a neighbor tried to rescue an 81-year-old woman from her burning house, but he was driven back by thick smoke. A fire marshal is investigating because the woman died, but the fire is thought to be an accident. That neighbor and a person driving by the house both called 9-1-1 at about 10:40 p-m Wednesday night to report the fire. The woman’s name hasn’t been released. She becomes the fourth person to die in a fire in Springfield this year.
