NORTH MIAMI, Fla. – A family is mourning the loss of Lindy Bell, described as kind-hearted and dedicated.
The 53-year-old mom, who had worked for the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office for more than three decades, died on Tuesday after a fire broke out at her home in North Miami.
She lived there with her only son and her 95-year-old mother
According to family, it was that son, Brandon, who was able to get his grandmother outside to safety during the blaze.
He then went back in — through fire and thick smoke — to try to save his mother.
“Lindy served her community as a parent and as a child support employee,” State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement. “She loved her family deeply — and her community — but was particularly dedicated to serving the children and families of Miami-Dade County during her decades of public service.”
The cause of the fire might have been electrical but remains under investigation.
