MANNINGTON — A fire late Friday night claimed the lives of a Mannington couple.

According to officials on scene, the fire began around 9:30 p.m. Fire rescue personnel were alerted after one of the victims, a woman, called her daughter to tell her that there was a fire in the house and that they could not get out.

Fire rescue personnel from Marion and Wetzel counties were on scene and worked valiantly for almost two hours to put out the fire. At its height, the flames could be seen from Farmington.

In addition to the house where the fire began, a house next door and a house behind were also affected by the flames. Even the tree outside burned.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The names of the victims have not yet been released.

FAIRMONT — At 9:30 p.m. Friday, Mannington firefighters were called out to a fire on Fairview Street that would burn until the early morning and claim the lives of a Mannington couple while a neighborhood looked on helplessly.

Lyndell and Gladys Harvey, who were in their 70s according to officials' estimates, perished in the flames. An investigation is ongoing to discover the cause of the fire.

According to Mannington Fire Chief Jim Moran, while the order of calls is unknown, Mrs. Harvey called 911 and her daughter-in-law, who lived in a garage apartment behind her house, before succumbing to the blaze.

Moran believes that the call to the daughter-in-law was made to alert the family to a fire so that they could escape
