Hospitalized man learns of wife's death in house fire

Fire investigators said a woman died in a house fire in Caldwell County.
 
The woman’s husband learned about the fire from his hospital bed.
 
The man said he tried calling his wife from the hospital, but the line went dead.   
 
Investigators said Nancy Miller, who had medical issues, activated a life alert button shortly after that fire started but didn't make it out. 
 
Firefighters said when they arrived they immediately tried to get into the home but were forced back by thick smoke and flames. 
 
Monday morning they sifted through the rubble trying to determine what started the fire that killed Miller.

Firefighters retrieved photos and other family items for her husband, Russell Miller.
 
The couple had been married for more than 40 years. 
 
Channel 9 spoke with him about learning of the fire from the hospital.
 
"Good lady ... sweet lady ... beautiful lady. I called and had my mobile phone, but I couldn't get her. It just died on me," Russell Miller said.
 
Fire investigators are focusing their efforts around the rear of the home, where the heaviest damage is located.
 
Investigators said this fire appears to be accidental but do not know how it started.
