Rolla woman dies as result of house fire

One person dies in a Rolla house fire.

Crews were called to a home near Rolla, last night around 8 p.m.  By the time they arrived, at least 50-percent of the home was engulfed in flames.

A male was able to escape and was treated for smoke inhalation.  A woman, who firefighters were able to eventually get out, died from smoke inhalation.

Crews had difficulty fighting the fire because of heavy fire and almost zero visibility.

The name of the victim hasn't been released pending notification of the family.  

The fire has been ruled accidental.
