Authorities Say Cause Of Fatal Fire in Ventura County May Never Be Determined

Posted on Monday, April 15, 2013 12:29pm

Ventura County fire investigators say we may never know the cause of a blaze which killed an elderly woman in Newbury Park.

Firefighters were called to a mobile home park on the 200 block of Monte Vista just after one a.m. Saturday. They arrived to find flames, and smoke pouring out of the windows of a mobile home. It took about an hour to put out the fire.

They found the body of a woman, and her cat inside. Authorities say because of the total destruction of the mobile home, it will be difficult to find evidence of what started the blaze. The name of the victim still hasn’t been released, pending notification of relatives.
