A fire this past weekend claimed the life of a Searcy County woman. The victim has been identified as Lynnette Wright.
Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell says the fire was reported about 1:30 Saturday morning on State Highway 74 West near Dongola, which is west of Marshall. The sheriff says his office has opened an investigation into the fire and will be assisted by the Arkansas State Police Fire Investigator.
Even though the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time, Cassell says no foul play is suspected.
