One woman is dead after a house fire that happened late last night on 1327 Oak Grove in Steubenville.

The Steubenville Fire Department said when they arrived they found heavy smoke coming from the first and second floors.

The victim, Frankie Allen, was immediately taken to the hospital and later taken by medical helicopter to Mercy Hospital for burns where she passed.

She was remembered as a loving person who always had a smile on her face.

Allen was a single mother and a nurse in the area.

The Assistant Fire Chief said the fire extended to two other homes, with just minor damage done.

The American Red Cross put the homeowners up in a local hotel for the night.

The State Fire Marshall has been notified and will be on scene later Saturday.
