A ferocious house fire about 11 pm Saturday night took the life of a 63 year-old New Albany woman.

New Albany Fire Chief Mark Whiteside said the house at 203 Hampton Ave., New Albany, near New Albany High School, was fully involved in flames when fire crews arrived.

Whiteside said firemen were able to enter the burning house through a window and removed a woman trapped inside. However, she died shortly thereafter.

Union County Coroner Pam Boman identified the victim as Pamela Mitchell, age 63.

Whiteside said the state fire marshal arrived in New Albany this morning to assist in investigating the deadly fire. Whiteside said no foul play is suspected.

The fire chief said this is the first fatal fire in New Albany in over ten years.
