Blind woman found dead in house fire

The fire was contained mostly to the kitchen area

Dayton Daily News

DAYTON, Ohio — To Duane Lee Tschanen's way of thinking, the neighbors on East Mumma Avenue lost a staple of the neighborhood Tuesday afternoon when his blind 84-year-old mother lost her life in a house fire.

"You don't have enough time to listen to all the wonderful memories I have of my mom," Tschanen said outside the single-family residence where Dayton firefighters found Artie Mae Housley, already deceased, on the kitchen floor near the stove.
