The 78-year-old woman found dead inside a mobile home in Yakima that caught fire has been identified. Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins identified the body as Marilyn Rae Lunceford after firefighters found her dead Wednesday night in the home at 55 W. Washington Avenue. Firefighters responded to the fire shortly after 10 p.m., to find the home with a significant amount of fire throughout 50 percent of the building. Firefighters said heat from the flames made it difficult for crews to get inside to reach a suspected trapped victim. Once they got inside, firefighters said they found the body near the fire's most intense area of origin. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday, Hawkins says.
