Des Moines Woman Dies in Fire

A woman was found dead at a fire scene Wednesday morning on the northwest side of Des Moines.  Fire inspectors are trying to determine a cause.  A representative of the Polk County medical examiner’s office was on the scene at the deceased woman’s home on 46th Street.  A neighbor reported the fire shortly before 5 a.m. When firefighters arrived, they found a fire in the kitchen and blaring smoke detectors.

The woman’s body was found in a bedroom on the second floor of the house.  Officials say nobody else was in the house at the time.  Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly and reported that it seemed to have started in the kitchen and that most of the damage was done in the kitchen.  The damage was estimated at $60,000.   It is not known why the victim was unable to leave the house.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the woman involved in this tragic accident.
