My condolences to her family. Fire is always a tragedy and loosing a loved one compounds the situation. If the fire was caused by a malfunctioning furnance, I pray that people take this as a serious warning and have their heating systems checked AND don't use space heaters. Of the other 2 fires in the county on Sunday morning, one was caused by the furnance, the other by a space heater.
