"I heard Bianca screaming," said Linda Stephens, who lives in a home across Hoover street. "I hollered 'Bianca' and she said, 'Linda! Linda!' and i couldn't get to her."
Stephens says Bianca lived in the home with her grandmother, grandfather and a little boy. She says while neither was seriously hurt no one was able to get back inside the home. By the time firefighters arrived it, was too late for Bianca.
"They put a green tarp across there and made us all go into the house so they could bring out the baby," Stephens said.
Investigators say the fire was electrical in nature but aren't sure how or where it started.
Merli Perez is a good friend of the family who says Bianca often played with her own kids.
Perez says Bianca’s grandmother told her she had gone to visit a neighbor for a few minutes, and when she returned the house was already burning, and that Bianca had been left inside, alone
"For me it's very hard to know that we couldn't do anything to save the girl," Perez said.
"It's just a sad thing for that little girl to burn up like that," Stephens said.
No other houses were affected by this fire.
Shelbyville fire officials say the fire marshal is expected to take over the investigation.
