This story really hits home for me. Lakisha was a high school friend of mine. She grew up in my neighborhood and I planned to see her the day she died. Please make sure you have working smoke detectors in your home. My thoughts and prayers are with her children and family. Tomorrow really isn’t promised, so be sure to love on your friends and family as much as you can.

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — One woman is dead after an early morning fire on the far east side.

Fire crews with the Columbus Division of Fire were dispatched to the 4500 block of Keeler Drive around 3:18am Saturday on the report of a fire. When crews arrived, they were able to contain the fire quickly, according to Battalion Chief Steve Martin.

Martin said that crews found a woman’s body inside the home. The victim was later identified as Lakisha Kelsor, 41.

According to Martin, the fire started when Kelsor apparently began cooking food and fell asleep. There were no working fire detectors in the home.

This is the 14th fire-related fatality in the city of Columbus this year.
