The mother that attempted to save her child from a fire this week has passed away from her injuries.

Chief Russell Taylor from the South Zanesville Fire Department confirmed the news Saturday morning.

Thursday morning the South Fire Department was called to the South Willow Drive home and found a home fully engulfed in flames. The mother and two children were home at the time.

The mother had gone to the basement to check a break box and discovered the fire and told her children to get out of the home.
