Lanier County, GA (WALB) - A disabled Lanier County woman was killed in a house fire.
Tammy Castleberry used a wheelchair. She was home alone yesterday when her house caught fire and investigators have no idea what started it.
A few flames flickered a day after a fire burned a house to the ground with 46-year old Tammy Castleberry inside. Her body was found in the living room in front of the fire place.
"She was a very likeable person," said Desso Faulkner, the victim's friend. "I know her through her boyfriend. They used to come to the VFW in Nashville and I enjoyed her."
"We hate that it happened," said Wayne Faulkner with the Lakeland Lanier County Fire Rescue. "We hate it real bad. She was already gone."
A person passing by saw the Teeterville Road home on fire Wednesday morning around 11:45 and called 911. Firefighters with the volunteer Lakeland-Lanier Fire Rescue and emergency workers got to the scene in less than 10 minutes. They battled the blaze for about an hour.
Randy Patten a paramedic and volunteer firefighter was on scene.
He says the first rescue worker there was a paramedic and former firefighter.
"He described it as almost a tornado with the flames rolling out crossing the highway," said Patten.
He says they could see smoke from their unit which is six miles away from the fire.
"It was an old fat lighter house," said Patten. "It was like a torch."
The sheriff said the house was about 100 years old and now all that's left is a chimney.
A Georgia State Fire Marshal was called out to the scene but still no word on what may caused it happened.
Just looking at the remains of the house left Deso Faulkner speechless.
Castleberry's loved ones can only hope the investigation brings answers and some closure after her tragic death.
