RICHMOND — A Richmond woman died after her Madison County home caught fire early Sunday morning.
The Richmond Fire Department was called to a home on Villa Road shortly before 5 a.m. and found the house in flames.
Firefighters pulled LaSha Noe, 21, from the fire and transported her to the local hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly before 6 a.m.
Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison said Noe was taken to Frankfort for an autopsy but it is likely that Noe died from smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, officials said.
