A fire in Alexander county claimed the life of a woman after her husband discovered that she was trapped inside their burning home. Investigators say 61-year old Barbara Davis, who was disabled, died in that McClellan Lane fire. Her husband came home to find their mobile home on fire shortly before five yesterday afternoon, but he couldn't reach his wife because of the smoke and flames. Deputies say much of the inside of the home was destroyed by the fire, and investigators have not released a cause.
