Des Moines House Fire Kills Woman

Fire inspectors are trying to determine how a residential fire that started in the kitchen of a Steldahl home killed a woman in the second-floor bedroom of her home.  When emergency personnel arrived at the house, smoke alarms were sounding and there was a blaze downstairs, but the only person in the house was unable to escape.   Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames quickly and the damage is estimated at around $60,000.  It is unknown why the victim wasn’t able to flee from the burning building.

A neighbor saw the blaze in the early morning hours of last Wednesday.  The neighbor reported having seen an orange glow coming from the house and then witnessing a burning piece of the house fall to the ground.

Our deepest condolences go out to the friends and family of all those involved in this tragedy.
