Two saved, one life lost in Elizabethton house fire

ELIZABETHTON — Valley Forge Free Will Baptist Church members were able to rescue two people from a house fire Sunday morning, but one person died in the blaze.

Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes said a fire originated in the stove area of a house at 1427 Riverview Drive around 9 a.m. Sunday. He said passers-by and members of the neighboring Valley Forge Free Will Baptist Church noticed smoke coming from the house, called 911 and helped rescue two of the people who were trapped inside. Mathes said one woman, identified as Tracy Parsons, 52, died in the fire.

The church members were identified by Mathes as Bobby James, Jay Kyte, Jeff Underwood and Clark Verran.
