Woman Killed in Anderson County, TX, Mobile Home Fire Accident

Anderson County, TX -- January 5, 2017, an elderly woman was killed following an accident where her mobile home off of CR 4365 caught fire.

Anderson County emergency crews were called out to the scene at about 2:30 p.m. in the 400 block of CR 4365.

According to preliminary reports, a mobile home caught fire while two women were still inside. One of the occupants was able to escape the building, but an 80=year-old woman could not get out of the home and was trapped by the blaze.

Emergency crews arrived on the scene, but they were unable to reach the elderly woman in time. She suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The condition of the other woman was not specified.

At this time, authorities suggest the fire might have started when a space heater caught a nearby curtain on fire. This has yet to be confirmed, however, as State Fire Marshals continue to investigate.

No further details have been reported.
