LELAND, N.C. (AP) — A Brunswick County woman has died after fire raced through her mobile home in Leland.

Sheriff’s deputies say the fire started late Monday afternoon, claiming the 55-year-old Bertha Denise Wilson.

A neighbor said he saw smoke coming from the home, told his wife to call 911 and tried to rescue Wilson. But the man was turned back by smoke. He said when he entered the mobile home, the floor gave way.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
