BURTON (WJRT) -

(02/12/14) - Burton Police have released the name of the woman who died in a house fire on Sunday.

Forty-one-year-old Monica Elkins was killed in the house fire in the 1200 block of Wells.

A neighbor tried to save her, but the heat was too intense.

"I looked out the window and seen smoke coming out of the side window, so I ran over there and started knocking on the door. I didn't hear anything so I kicked the door in and yelled for her. There was too many flames coming out the door once I kicked it open and see if she was there," said Darrel Davenport, a neighbor.

Investigators don't believe the fire was suspicious.
