Neighbor Carla Davis said Hollis was always a cordial neighbor, making her sudden death surprising and upsetting.

Hollis' sister-in-law said the family is in shock, and was not ready to comment on her passing.

Huntsville Police Lt. Michael Johnson said investigators left the scene of the fire Friday, and did not find evidence of foul play.

Neighbor Jane Anderson said he tried to see if anyone was home while others called 911, but was unable to find or hear Hollis.

“Me and about five or six other guys were running around the house yelling, trying to get someones attention if they were in the house. We couldn’t hear anybody. Finally we started kicking in the windows, cause we wanted to make sure anyone was out the house. We couldn’t hear any noises, nobody screaming or anything like that," he said.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
