Woman Killed in Berino Home Fire Still Unidentified

Monday, January 16, 2012 - 7:16pm

BERINO— Doña Ana County investigators have yet to release the name of the woman who died in Sunday's home fire.

Firefighters from multiple fire departments responded to the fire in the 200 block of Candelaria early Sunday.

Residents we spoke with said they tried to rescue the woman, but the fire was too intense.

One of the neighbors captured the flames on their cell phone.

Investigators with the Doña Ana County Fire Marshal's Office determined the fire was caused by a chimney pipe that was installed improperly.

More details on the victim are expected as soon as tomorrow morning.
