A woman has died and three other people were hurt in a mobile home fire in Reno County on Tuesday morning.

The Reno County Sheriff's Office says firefighters and law enforcement were called to a structure fire around 2:40 a.m. in the area of 9 E Horseshoe Lane in Pretty Prairie.

Crews arrived to find a single story double-wide mobile home on fire. The fire spread quickly to other parts of the structure within minutes.

Deputies learned 21-year-old Hannah Perry and her two children, ages 1 and 2, had escaped the fire, but their grandmother, 70-year-old Judy Kay Alley, was still inside.

Eyewitness News reporter Anna Auld talked to a neighbor who said Perry came to his house with her two children. She was bleeding and pounding on the front door which woke him up. He then called 911.

Once firefighters were able to put out the fire, they found Alley dead inside the home.

The sheriff's office said the Perry and her one-year-old son were taken to Wichita by EMS. Her two-year-old daughter was flown by EagleMed to Wichita hospital.
