BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Fire officials say a smoke alarm saved a Morgan County woman's life Wednesday when a fire destroyed her house off Fairview Drive.
Sharon Clark was sleeping when the fire broke out in her house in the Clark subdivision about 11:18 a.m., said Lt. Dan Unger of the Berkeley Springs Fire Co.
After being awakened by the smoke alarm, Clark walked toward the living room and found the room in flames, Unger said. Clark then went into the basement and exited through a downstairs door, said Unger.
