An investigation will take place to determine the cause of a fire that claimed the life of a 67-year-old Morristown woman Friday evening.
According to reports, Linda Joyce Singleton was alone in her home at College Park Apartments on Mall Drive when the fire struck. Upon entry to the apartment, first responders found the woman at the scene but attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.
Only Singleton’s apartment suffered fire damage, but the other units in the four plex suffered smoke damage due to a shared attic.
The cause of the fire will be investigated by fire officials and the TBI.
Early reports indicate no evidence of foul play.
The Red Cross is assisting the three residents displaced from their apartments due to the fire.
