Neighbors had tried to get into the house on Crocker Ridge near Ridgecroft Friday morning to save her, but the doors were locked. Firefighters forced their way in. They found the woman on the floor in a hallway.

They say it looks like she had tried to get out. Neighbors did all they could before firefighters arrived.

"I went around the house a couple of times to check out and see somebody answer, but I had no answer," said Rene Garcia, who tried to save the woman. "It looked like somebody was in there."

Arson investigators are looking for the cause.
