Tragedy struck the East Arlington area shortly after 8:30 PM Monday, 17 December, as firefighters found themselves battling a residential structure fire in the gated community known as "The Woods." Located just off Atlantic Boulevard, more specifically the 13000 block of Wild Olive Court, arriving units at the aforementioned address were promptly confronted by a raging blaze, virtually encasing the entire single story, single family home within a wall of flame. After nearly twenty-five minutes of arduous suppression efforts the fire was called under control and an elegiacal discovery was made: the lifeless body of an elderly woman located in a rear bedroom. No immediate evidentiary materials provided any clues as to what may have sparked the tragic fire.
