Valdosta - A South Georgia woman is killed in a house fire.

It happened along the2900 block of Tara Drive around 10 Tuesday night. Thirty-eight year old Rhonda Brantley of Valdosta was asleep on her couch when sparks ignited in the living room. Firefighters think the fire may have started from a cigarette.

Phillip Glenn lives next door and tried to rescue Brantley. "I went around and kicked the door in, but because it was so hot and smokey, I couldn't enter the house," said Glenn.

No other people were in the home when it caught fire. Brantley's dog was inside, but wasn't hurt.
