ITAWAMBA COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A woman and her unborn child are dead following a fatal fire near Mooreville Tuesday.

Sheriff Chris Dickinson has identified the woman as 23-year-old Amber Parker.

She lived in the mobile home on County Line Road that burned.

Emergency responders found out about the fire after 10 a.m.

The sheriff says Alex Witcher, who lived in the home, was able to get a 4 year old and 3 year old out of the burning structure before he tried to rescue Parker.

Witcher was taken to North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo with cuts.

Dickinson says Parker's body is being sent to Jackson for an autopsy.
