Woman Dies in House Fire
A mobile home fire this morning has claimed the life of the homeowner. Her body was discovered by her grandson, who lived with her.
Department of Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland says the body of 78-year-old Shirley Day was found in the rubble of her mobile home in Chester, which is near Lincoln. Her grandson shared the Loop Road home with her. He reportedly left on an errand early this morning and found the mobile home on fire when he returned at around 10 a.m.
State Police investigators have joined fire marshals at the scene to assist them with the investigation. So far, there’s no word on what started that fire.
