Ada — A 75-year-old Oakman resident died in a house fire early Wednesday morning in the Woodbrook housing complex.

A Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputy was among the first on the scene and pulled Curtis L. Hughey Jr. from the burning house, Rob Johnson, assistant fire chief on the A shift for the Ada Fire Department, said Friday. Hughey was pronounced dead at the scene, but information about the case of death was not available Friday.

Hughey was the only person in the building at the time.
