MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
The Montgomery Fire Department is investigating after a house fire turned fatal Friday afternoon in West Montgomery.
Firefighters responded to the fire on Drake Street where reports indicated a person was trapped inside. Neighbors told WSFA 12 News they tried to help until firefighters arrived.
"I took off, I tried to kick in the door. I was trying to get in, but all the smoke came in my mouth," said Batavia Chisholm, a neighbor who knew the victim. "I had to come back out, you know what I'm saying."
Crews worked to extinguish the flames coming from the roof of the small, pink house. Once the flames were extinguished, authorities found the victim's remains in the room where the fire originated.
"I'm hurt because everyone out here in the neighborhood considered her as a mother, a grandmother," Batavia Chisholm said. "She"'s a good Christian lady."
No fire department personnel were injured.
The victim has not been identified at this time, nor has the cause of the blaze been determined.
WSFA 12 News will have more information as it becomes available.
