An elderly woman is dead after a mobile home fire Wednesday night.
According to the Yakima Fire Department, the woman was killed when a fire broke out in a single-wide mobile home. The fire sparked in the Broadmoor Mobile Park near Washington Avenue and South 3rd Avenue shortly after 10:00 Wednesday night. Due to the intense heat of the fire, crews couldn't immediately go into the home to search for the suspected trapped victim, Shift Commander Tom Schneider says.
Once firefighters were able to get inside, the woman was found near the fire's most intense area of origin.
Officials say there appears to be "a significant amount of fire throughout 50% of the entire dwelling."
The woman's identity will be determined by the Yakima County Coroner.
