An elderly woman died Sunday morning when her family’s home went up in flames on Windsor Spring Road.

Fire officials say 76 year old Delores Ann Strickland was unable to get out of the house in time, despite her husband’s efforts to save her.  Firefighters found Strickland’s body in a bedroom.

Her husband had serious burns and is being treated in the burn unit at Doctors Hospital.

No word yet on what started the fire.  Authorities say the home was a total loss.
