Woman found dead after central Indiana home fire

Posted: Updated:

SPICELAND, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was found dead after a fire in a small central Indiana town that also badly hurt her husband.

Firefighters were called about 4 a.m. Thursday to an old barn that had been converted into a home in the Henry County town of Spiceland.

Neighbors tell WISH-TV that they stopped the woman's husband from going back inside the burning home to try and rescue her. Spiceland fire chief Scott Teague says the man was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital with severe burns.

The Star Press reports crews found the woman's body with the help of a cadaver dog after the fire was extinguished.

A cause wasn't immediately determined for the fire in the 900-person town about 30 miles east of Indianapolis.
