Woman dies in Oxford fire

An early-morning fire claimed the life of an Oxford woman and sent another woman to the hospital in critical condition, Oxford Fire Department Deputy Chief David Duchaine said.

Firefighters got the call at around 12:30 a.m. Thursday to respond to a fire at 1109 S. 14th St., the home of Frances Brown, who was critically injured in the fire. She was flown to a burn center in Alabama.

Officials  have identified the woman who died as Patricia K. Wilkerson, 54, originally of Vicksburg. (January 20, 2011, Page 1)

      I was shocked and dismayed to see the name of the lady who died in the fire published on the internet, especially following the statement: “an official identification had not been made!” What if some of her family had just looked at the Eagle website to see what was going on in Oxford today! Horrible! Frances is a long-time family friend, and we have known the other lady a number of years as well. The families will be in our prayers. In this case, I’m disappointed in the Eagle’s reporting.
