Woman killed in Odenton house fire

March 11, 1996|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

An Anne Arundel County woman was killed early yesterday in a house fire, which five other adults and three children escaped unharmed, a Fire Department spokesman said.

Christine Sigley, 21, died when fire destroyed the 2 1/2 -story frame house in the 400 block of Oakton Road where she lived in a second-floor apartment.

Her boyfriend, Russell Rice, and her father, David Sigley, escaped, said Battalion Chief J. Gary Sheckells, a county Fire Department spokesman.

Ms. Sigley apparently went back inside for clothes, Chief Sheckells said. Firefighters believe she became disoriented and collapsed before the second floor gave way. Chief Sheckells said her body was found on the first floor.

Six first-floor residents -- three women and three children ages 6, 7 and 8 -- escaped, he said.
