January 14, 2019

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a house fire that claimed a Florida woman’s life.

The Florida Times-Union reports that firefighters found the woman’s body in the front of the home while responding to the early Sunday morning fire. Her name was not immediately released.

The cause of her death, as well as the cause of the fire, are under investigation by the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and state Fire Marshal’s Office.

Neighbors said the woman lived with her husband at the home. His whereabouts were not immediately clear.

Duval County property records list a woman with a Hawaii mailing address as the homeowner, but it was not certain she was the victim.
