ALPHARETTA, Ga. – An Alpharetta woman is dead after sustaining injuries from a house fire in the early morning of June 28.
The fire was reported before 6 a.m. at a home on Clipper Bay Drive and was well underway when fire crews arrived, police say. Police arrived first, with fire crews shortly after.
"The entire residence was involved with fire and heavy smoke with very limited visibility," said George Gordon, spokesman for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety.
Officials say police officers arrived first to the home. They and arriving fire fighters broke into the home and began a search for the resident, later identified as Yvonne Crisp, 52.
911 had Crisp on the phone until she lost consciousness.
When first responders finally found the woman in an upstairs room, they pulled her from the home as the building's roof began to collapse.
Police began CPR as Crisp was loaded into an ambulance and taken to North Fulton Hospital in serious condition. She was later moved to a burn center in Augusta.
She later died of her injuries.
Alpharetta and Milton fire crews worked to contain the blaze, however the home was destroyed.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
The home was destroyed.

(1) What does "me was destroyed." mean, at the end of the report?
(2) Please follow this report and try to get us the cause of the fire.

That was a typo, Leo. That line should have read "The home was destroyed."
And we will certainly keep everyone updated as more information becomes available.
