UPDATE: Hartselle Police officials have identified the woman who died in the Tuesday mornings house fire as 51-year-old Sharon Crane Phillips.

Police say her teenage daughter was able to escape the house during the fire. She was transported to Decatur Morgan Hospital and treated for her injuries. She was later released.

The investigation into the cause of the fire remains on-going.


Hartselle Fire Chief Daryl Fox tells WZDX that investigators are still looking into the cause of an early morning fire that killed one woman, and injured another.  One firefighter also suffered from over exertion and smoke inhalation while fighting the blaze.

Chief Fox says the call came in shortly before 2:00 this morning in reports to smoke billowing from the rear of a home at 901 Logwood Road SW, in Hartselle.

Fox says a mother and daughter had lived in the home and the daughter was able to escape the blaze, breaking out a window of the home. Her mother, however, was unable to get out of the house and was found deceased. The daughter was transported to the hospital.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshall, Hartselle Fire Department and Hartselle Police Department.
