Enterprise Fire Fatality

It is the first fire fatality in Enterprise in seven years.

It happened around one o'clock Tuesday morning.

Neighbors say they saw flames shooting more than 15-feet into the sky.

By the time firefighters arrived, the three bedroom home on Morgan Lane was completely engulfed in flames.

107-year-old Alice Corzilius was not able to escape the fire and was found dead in her bed.

Her daughter and the homeowner, 75-year-old Betsy Ann Gibson, told firefighters that she couldn't lift her mother to safety.

Authorities say candles may be to blame for that fire.
