After they extinguished the fire, they found the body of a woman inside the home. Officials said they have not yet identified the woman.

The second fire happened at a home on Wilkie Street. Officials said one person in the home suffered third-degree burns and is being treated at a hospital. They said the fire may have started in the kitchen, but the cause is under investigation.
