Woman injured in Largo fire dies

A female victim of a fire at a Largo mobile home died early Sunday at Tampa General Hospital, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.

Diane S. Cole, 54, died about 3 a.m., the sheriff's department said. The Medical Examiner's office will conduct an autopsy to determine cause and manner of death.

Arson detectives are still investigating the fire that occurred Friday night at the Green Meadows Mobile Home Park.

According to detectives, two people in the home were sleeping when the fire broke out.

A male victim, Wesley Carter, 54, woke to the smoke and was unable to assist Cole out of the home, so he went to get help from a neighbor. The neighbor then helped the woman out of the mobile home.
