Small fire at Walla Walla's Borleske Stadium extinguished quickly

YAKIMA, WA - An elderly woman died in a mobile home fire on West Washington Avenue in Yakima Wednesday night.

When firefighters got there, shortly after 10 last night, 50 percent of the single-wide home was filled with flames. The immense heat hampered efforts to enter the home immediately to search for her.

When crews got in, they found the woman near the most intense area and pronounced her dead at the scene.

An investigation as to what caused the fire is underway.
