Fire Fatality Kills Two Women
Two Ocala women are dead after a house fire this afternoon.
One woman died in the fire and the other, a short time later.
Aside from the police tape and emergency vehicles circling the Northeast Ocala home, it was difficult to tell that there was a fire in the home.
Instead of the flames and smoke you would expect to see, there was water and not from the firefighters.
At a little after three this afternoon, firefighters got a call that a 79 year old woman's home was burning.
When they arrived they found the woman already dead in the kitchen.
The fire appeared to be contained around the sink area.
The cause is still unknown.
Lt. Robby Stephens with the State Fire Marshal says,
"We have another victim who we believe to be a relative of the fire victim who i believe came over as a result of the fire and got transported to the hospital from what i'm told is that she may have suffered some heart issues and expired at the hospital."
When firefighters entered the home, they found themselves wading through about two inches of water that covered the floor.
They believe the water could have come from damaged water pipes in the kitchen.
As of now the State Fire Marshal says the fire does not appear to be suspicious, although the investigation continues.
