Middletown Fire Claims One Life

One person was killed in a Middletown house fire over the weekend.

The house was completely destroyed in the fire including the garage and a car inside.

Fire fighters say that the house was engulfed when they arrived.

A woman was able to make it out before firefighters got there but the woman's brother-in-law, 70 year old Clarence Collinsworth, was not.

He was found by the back door as, officials say, he was trying to escape.
