Video from EastCountyToday taken during a fatal house fire March 6 in Oakley, California.
At 5:42 pm Friday, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District responded to a report of a house fire in the 500 block of Norcross Lane in the City of Oakley.
Upon arrival, firefighters observed smoke and flames coming from the garage and as they approached the home, fire began to spread throughout the home and out the garage and through the roof.
According to Battalion Chief Ross Macumber, while responding crews were informed of a person trapped inside the home, however, crews tried to make efforts to rescue the victim but by the time crews were able to make access to the person they had already perished in the fire. The identity of the elderly female was not released and the fire is still under investigation.
