RHEA COUNTY, TN (WRCB) - An early morning fire claimed the life of one Rhea County woman.

It happened on Saturday morning on Fisher Road. Fire crews were called out around 6:30 a.m.

Inside was 80-year-old Joyce Burnett, who lived at the home alone. We're told she most likely died from smoke inhalation. Those who knew her say she will be greatly missed.

While the fire is still under investigation, fire officials say they believe it was an electrical fire that started in the attic and spread quickly to the rest of the home. They say the house was a total loss.
