Tennessee Rescuer and Neighbors Die in House Fire

A Tennessee man rushed into a burning house to save three neighbors from a weekend fire that instead claimed his life and theirs, reports the Associated Press.

Danny Nash, 55, was killed while trying to evacuate an older couple and a disabled woman from the home.

The three-bedroom brick house was still smoldering Monday morning and surrounded by police tape. The only part of the structure left standing was a carport with two vehicles inside. The rest of the home had collapsed into the basement. Fire investigators were waiting for the debris to cool down completely before they could determine the cause of the fire.

Firefighters later pulled the Solomon couple out, but they did not survive. Sheila Nash said her husband also tried to save Barbara Solomon’s sister, 65-year-old Alice Cockrill, who was described by authorities as disabled, but they both were killed.
