Woman dies in Jessamine County fire

A woman died in a house fire Saturday morning at the Tates Creek Estates mobile home park in Jessamine County.

Johnny Adams, the county’s emergency management director, said crews were just finishing up a water rescue of a woman stranded in a stalled vehicle on Brumfield Lane when they were called to the fire early Saturday.

Adams said the victim was inside the burnt trailer. Jessamine Deputy Coroner Lance Roe identified her as Jane Ellen Poirer, 63. She was widowed and lived alone, Roe said.

An autopsy was scheduled.
