Sherman police have identified the woman found in a fire at a Sherman motel last week. Sgt. D. M. Hampton said the body of a woman found in the fire at the Lone Star Inn and Suites on November 9 has been identified as Lisa Cecile Buchanan, 63, of Sherman. Hampton said the preliminary investigation indicates that there was no foul play suspected in the woman’s death.


Sherman Fire-Rescue crews responded to the hotel, which is sometimes referred to as the old Executive Inn, after dispatchers received reports that one of the first-floor units had caught on fire. Hampton said the fire appeared to be accidental and was in a first-floor unit.


Guests of the hotel were evacuated for a period of time while the fire was extinguished.
