Camilla-- A Southwest Georgia woman owes her life to two men, who pulled her from an early morning house fire. Another man, trapped inside, did not escape the flames.

Around six a.m. a neighbor driving by on his way to work saw flames coming from the home on Pine Street in Camilla, stopping to help. A second passerby also stopped.

The men broke inside the home, pulling Lucy Turner to safety, but 55-year-old Ken Turner was not able to escape the burning house.

"I think he was overcome by the smoke in the house became disoriented trying to find his way out-- stumbled in the house, overcome by smoke," said Investigator Vernon Nobles.

When firefighters arrived shortly after six a.m., the house was engulfed in flames. The fire is believed to have started on the east side of the home, where the kitchen and a sitting room were located.

Investigators do not know what caused the fire, but are confident there was no foul play.
