A fire in lorenzo has taken the life of a retired school teacher.
Fire crews were called to 110 North Van Buren Street in Lorenzo around 9:30 AM. They had the fire under control in about two hours,but sadly they were too late to save 61-year old Rita Crelia.
Crelia taught special education at Lorenzo schools for more than a decade.
Many of her former co-workers were too broken up about the incident to speak on camera. But one fellow teacher and neighbor says she will be missed.
"She's a really good person. She cared about her students and so on, and, she really put her life into it," said Felix Martinez.
"Losing her is a big loss. It really is."
