A community is in mourning today, just hours after a day of giving thanks.
Bay Minette fire officials and police responded to a house fire on Friday, November 23 at approximately 2:40 a.m. The fire was located at 606 West 6th Street.
Officials say once entry was made into the home, a deceased person was found inside. The cause of the fire and how the person died is still under investigation.
The name of the victim will not be released at this time. The investigation is being conducted by the State Fire Marshall.
Neighbors who live in the area tell FOX 10, the victim was a 15 year old girl who went to Baldwin County High School.
Aireon Baker who was passing by the home with his mother, when we spoke to him, says he's a classmate of the victim. He says he heard about the incident in a group chat with school mates this morning.
"She was just the most outspoken person, fun to be around, you were going to get a laugh everyday," Baker said. "I just loved her personality. She always would have a good time, have fun with us, basketball players, football players."
Other community members who spoke to us off camera talked about how sad they were that this happened and especially to a teenager.
Many of the details surrounding the incident are cloudy. This story is developing.
