Woman Dies in Eastman House Fire

A 67-year-old woman died in a house fire in Eastman early Sunday morning.

That's according to Dodge County Coroner, Joe Smith.

Smith says it happened on Bacon Avenue. He says 67-year-old Joyce Paul was taken to the Dodge County Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Smith says Paul's son, Greg Purvis, called in the fire around 12:30 a.m. He says Purvis woke up from the flames and tried to break into his mother's bedroom window, where she was, at the time of the fire.

He says crews fought the blaze from 12:30 to around 3:15 a.m.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
