A fire on the 5700 block of Poplar st. claimed the life of one woman on her second floor rear bedroom.

The fire was controlled within 30 minutes, but the 98-year-old woman, identified by her neighbors as Ann Williams, did not survive.

Williams lived in the home with her son, and was described as a "fixture on the block for decades." Her son returned home to the fire and tried to rescue his mom, but was unable to save her.
