MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A 10 month old girl who was pulled from a house fire in Morristown has died.

The Morristown Fire Department responded to a fire on Brights Pike around 12:15 a.m. Sunday. When they got there, Briana Hidrogo was trapped inside.

They found her near a rear, second-story window of the duplex, which allowed the firefighters to get her out of the home.

Briana was flown to Doctors Hospital's Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. Her body will be brought back to Hamblen County, or sent to South Carolina for an autopsy.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
