CASTLEWOOD, Va. -

An elderly woman was found dead after a fire broke out inside her home.

Russell County authorities tell us 87-year-old Arlena Salyers was found dead on Saturday in her Castlewood home.

Fire crews say it's likely Salyers died while she had food in the oven.

We're told the smoke from the food is what led crews to her house.
