Investigators still don't know what caused the Sunday afternoon house fire that killed a Durham woman.

Sherry L. Templeton, 40, was killed inside her home at 208 Old Fox Trail in the Woodcroft subdivision in southwest Durham.

A rescue team found the woman at the top of some stairs.

One firefighter was treated at Durham Regional Hospital for burns, then released.

The fire started about 3 p.m. Neighbors saw flames shooting from the house and called the fire department.

One neighbor kicked in a door and searched for Templeton, but he had to flee the burning house because of the smoke and flames
