House Fire Leaves One Dead; One On Life Support

A house fire on Donley Drive in Garden Lakes Monday morning resulted in the death of 89 year-old Sung Iee Park and left her 94 year-old husband in critical condition and on life support.

According to Floyd County Coroner Gene Proctor, Park died as the result of smoke inhalation and severe burns to her body.

Reports said that Park was alive but injured when fire officials arrived on scene just before 2 am Monday.  Firefighters retrieved Park from inside the home, while her husband was able to escape outside.  He was eventually placed on life support being flown to an Atlanta hospital.

Reports added that the fire seems to have been electrical and that nothing seems to be suspicious.
