Morgan says the homeowner, a 93-year-old woman, died after being transported to the King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland following the fire. Her name has not been released yet.

While many neighbors were asleep and unaware of what was happening, others who were awake tried to help. Nearby neighbor Devin Mosier made an effort to save her and says this event brought out emotions he wasn’t ready to deal with.

I never thought I’d have to come home to this. It’s emotional, everyone around here knew her.

Mosier says he remembers the tragic event very vividly and could hear her calling for help making the rescue effort more frantic.

We had just got home; we were out playing cards with some family. She noticed the house was on fire and we tried to make an entry, but the house was just so hot.
