POLKVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Cleveland County say a woman died in a house fire in Polkville.

WSOC-TV in Charlotte reports (https://bit.ly/1nrbl7V) that neighbors said some hunters passing through the area saw the fire Wednesday night, but by the time they ran up to the house, the flames were coming out of the roof.

The victim’s identity had not been released Thursday.

A few neighbors say they tried to get inside to help the woman but the door was locked and the smoke was too strong.
