TURTLECREEK TWP., Ohio -- A woman is dead after flames ripped through a mobile home in Turtlecreek Township early Tuesday.
Investigators say the incident happened at about 5 a.m. at a home in the Shadow Lake Mobile Home Village located in the 2400 block of Mason Montgomery Road.
The victim was later identified as Etta Marie Fleenor.
A neighbor and friend of Fleenor's spoke with WCPO’s Kendall Herold. Jackie Williams said she had just gone shopping with Fleenor Monday night.
Williams said she had dinner plans with Fleenor after going shopping.
"She wanted mashed potatoes and green beans. But she slept too late, she goes, ‘You don't have to cook them tonight.’ So I gave her a kiss on the cheek, told her I loved her, and would see her in the morning. And that's the last time I seen her,” Williams said.
Williams said she helped care for Fleenor often and that the victim was on oxygen treatment and was a smoker with health issues.
According to Williams, Fleenor was in another trailer fire a few years ago but was able to escape. Until Tuesday morning's fire, neighbors worried it would happen again.
She said Fleenor was a kind-hearted woman who would do “anything for anyone.”
"I want everybody to remember her to be happy, because that's the way she would want people to be. And remember the things she did for people. One year, she made over 100 prayer shawls. We took them to the nursing home and passed them out to the people. That's just the kind of person she was," Williams said.
Williams said Fleenor had a daughter, Jessica Hawk, who was killed in New Orleans. She said a suspect in the case was arrested last week.
Williams said Fleenor’s son, Brandon, traveled to New Orleans often after Hawk’s death to look for the killer.
A state fire investigator said the fire was confined to the inside of the home, but it was too early to determine a cause Tuesday evening.
The Warren County Coroner is expected to release Fleenor's autopsy report before Friday.
