MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Investigators say a cigarette left smoldering on a couch sparked the house fire that killed two people in the Southern Oregon town of Rogue River

Authorities identified the victims of the Wednesday morning fire as 77-year-old Theodore Stanfield, who lived at the house, and a visitor, 56-year-old Karen Crayne of Grants Pass. A second woman described as Stanfield’s girlfriend, 47-year-old Johanna W. Campbell-Smith, escaped.

The Mail Tribune (http://bit.ly/1lDBoIl ) reports that neighbors across the street called 911 after Campbell-Smith woke them with screams for help.
