67-year-old woman dies in a Greene County house fire, trying to save her sister

GREENEVILLE (WATE) — The Greene County Sheriff’s Office has determined that a woman died Friday afternoon while trying to save her sister from a house fire. The fire started just before 4 p.m.

Officials say 67-year-old Diane McGhee ran to a neighbor’s house for help and told them to call 911. McGhee then ran back into the home to save her bedridden 63-year-old sister, Linda Inscore.

The 33 firefighters who responded to the scene were unable to make entry once they arrived due to the intense flames.

Both women died in the fire. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
