House Fire Claims Elderly Woman's Life

Indianapolis woman was 72

(INDIANAPOLIS)  --  A house fire on the southeast-side of Indianapolis has claimed the life of an elderly woman.  The Indianapolis Fire Department reports 72-year old Bettie Bradley died in Eskenazi Hospital after a fire broke out in her home in the 27-hundred block of Duane Drive last night.  Her 81-year old brother remains in very critical condition at Eskenazi Hospital.  Her 51-year old son remains in good condition at Eskenazi Hospital.  Neighbors Duane and Sally Unversaw told firefighters they saw smoke coming from the front of the house and quickly called  9-1-1 and began using a garden hose to pour water on the flames until fire fighters arrived.  Mrs. Bradley's 51-year old son tried to rescue the couple, but was forced out and injured by smoke inhalation.
