BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) - An early morning fire at Newport Villa apartments left one woman dead.
The fire started around seven thirty sunday morning.
Several neighbors and tenants tried to contain the fire, but two people were trapped on the second floor.
When BRFD got there, they set up two ladders on both sides of the upstairs hallway, rescuing one person from the railing, and another from an apartment bedroom.
Baton Rouge firefighters found 71 year old Lizzie Simond dead in the apartment that the whole blaze came from.
Nebraska Palmer's wife was one of the people laddered down, and he's happy his family's okay.
