An 86-year-old woman has been found dead in the aftermath of an early morning house fire in Springfield.
Crews got the call around 12:30am Monday for a structure fire in the 500 block of South Livingston. After putting out the blaze, they found Barbara Morgan deceased inside.
Coroner Cinda Edwards says an autopsy indicates that Morgan had died of natural causes… and not as a result of the fire. One firefighter sustained minor injuries trying to put out the flames. The cause of that fire is still under investigation.
