Grandmother Dies In Arson Fire

Fire investigators told Channel 2 Action News Monday that a fire that killed a Douglas County grandmother Sunday was deliberately set.

Velma Stuckey, 69, died in the fire at her home in the 4900 block of Yeager Road.

An autopsy was underway Monday afternoon to determine the exact cause of death.

Stuckey lived in the home with 15-year-old. Sheriff’s deputies questioned that teenager, but did not name him as a suspect.

Investigators said the fire started on the second floor. They are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

Stuckey had five grown children.
