A Starkville woman has died in a structure fire.
Oktibbeha County Coroner Michael Hunt identified the victim as Willie Mae Allen, 76. She was pronounced dead Wednesday after Starkville Fire Department responded to a fire at her home on Fellowship Street. SFD Fire Marshal Mark McCurdy said the call came in at 4:50 a.m.
When firefighters arrived, the house was completely engulfed. The fire did not spread to any other structure.
McCurdy said while the fire appears to be accidental, it is still under investigation.
