Video: Fire Claims Life of Lee County Woman
Susan Bradley, 47, died in the house fire on County Road 395, near Birmingham Ridge Road. Firefighters responded after 11 p.m. to the blaze.
Firefighters searched the home several times looking for the victim after a cell phone trace showed her phone still was in the home. She was found in the home’s laundry room between a washer and a dryer and firefighters and relatives say she may have been battling the smoke in search of the family’s pet dogs and cats. The animals were found in a bedroom.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
