MACON, Ga. — A 68-year-old woman has died in a house fire in Macon.
Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones tells news outlets that Ruby Davis was found dead early Monday.
Jones says Davis’ 70-year-old brother Robert Dudley had tried to rescue her, but there was too much fire and smoke. Dudley was treated for smoke inhalation and cuts he sustained while escaping out a window.
Officials say another woman escaped the blaze uninjured.
Macon-Bibb County Fire Lt. Ben Gleaton says the fire appears to have been an accident, but the exact cause still is under investigation.
