TURNER STATION, KY (WAVE) - A new mother died after a fire ripped through her home in Carroll County. The name of the 37-year-old woman, who leaves behind a 4-month-old baby, has not been released, but firefighters think they know what caused the blaze.
"His father's up there, he's not in good shape," said Donna Spurr, a family member. "They lost everything and she lost her life."
It was around 5 a.m. December 2 when the fire broke out in family's home.
"I got my wife out, that's the main thing," the child's great-grandfather said. "I would have saved the other one, but I couldn't get to her."
The victim's fiancé's family lived next door. Their mobile homes were connected by stairs. His grandparents and aunt are lucky they survived.
"Go on with life, that about all I can do," the great-grandfather said.
