Slaton Woman Dies In Wednesday Night Fire

51-year-old Bessie Mae Chapman died in a Wednesday night fire. It broke out at around 7:30 p.m. Chapman's family told us they called 9-1-1 when they saw smoke and Slaton Firefighters responded soon after. The state fire marshal's office is interviewing witnesses, and said we should know the cause of the fire and Chapman's death by next week. However, they do not believe foul play is involved.

NewsChannel 11 talked with friends and family about the person they called a lovely lady. "The last time I seen her was at church. She was very happy. A lady use to bring her to church, she was a happy person, a friendly person, and a loveable person. I loved her and she knew me and she'd reach out and say 'how you doing today?' I'd say just fine," says Mable Willis, a church friend.

Bessie Mae's charred home now serves as a reminder to loved ones of the tragedy that took her life. Friends and neighbors drove by the house today, to pay their respects. They told us about a cheerful lady that loved church and had the most beautiful singing voice in the choir.
