Greeneville woman escapes house consumed by flames

December 4th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

According to a Greeneville Sun report, a 71-year-old  woman escaped her burning home uninjured but only with the clothes she was wearing and her purse.

Greeneville Fire Department Lt. Marty Shelton said firefighters found flames coming from the front and roof of  Lucille Anderson's home when they arrived. He added Anderson escaped the burning house before firefighters reached the scene.

Greeneville police officers alerted and evacuated  residents of a nearby  house while firefighters sprayed water onto it to prevent it from bursting into flames due to heat radiating from Ms. Anderson's burning residence.
