A house fire in Oaktown kills a 70 year old woman this morning.
Jeanette Rickard was inside the home at 308 Raymond Street in Oaktown, when crews responded to the fire around 8:20 this morning. Rickard was found inside the living room, which a preliminary investigation finds that’s where the fire originated.
An autopsy earlier today indicates Rickard died from smoke inhalation. Her death was ruled accidental. Indiana State Police assisted with the investigation.
