A close family friend says the 16-year-old girl who died in the mobile home fire Saturday morning is Rybeca Conner. She went to Kiona-Benton City High School and is the daughter of James Conner.
Benton County Sheriff's Deputies say a fire broke out at 22509 East Badger Road around 9:00am Saturday. A 16-year-old girl and her 12-year-old brother were inside. The 12-year-old was able to escape through a window, but the girl did not survive.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
