The home on Tribble Gates Drive caught on fire around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, when a passerby called 911 reporting black smoke and fire coming from the windows and doors of the two-story home. Firefighters arrived at 1:32 p.m. to find an “intense blaze” on both floors of the home.

Firefighters learned the resident was still inside, and went in to get them out. The occupant had “life-threatening injuries” and was pronounced dead after arriving at a hospital. 

The fire caused extensive damage to the home, especially on the second floor and in the attic. Three adults and four children who reside in the home, but were not inside at the time of the fire, were displaced. The fire’s cause is still under investigation, but it is believed to have begun in the living room, according to the department.
