BERLIN, GA (WALB) – Firefighters were unable to save a Berlin woman from an inferno Friday afternoon when her double wide mobile home caught fire.

65-year-old Mary Ruth Olliff's body was found in a bedroom of the home she shared with her husband. He was not home alone at the time.

Investigators think the fire started in the master bedroom, but they don't yet know the cause.

"We were dispatched to the fire around 1:30PM, we arrived on scene and it was fully involved we had our engine and tanker from Berlin, as soon as we got here we did all we could," said Kayla Bridwell, Berlin Volunteer Fire Dept.

The state's fire commissioner's office is looking into how the fire started.
