PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman and her two dogs were killed in a central Florida mobile home fire.

Port Orange Fire Marshal Chris Weir told The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://goo.gl/90jEEq ) that firefighters responded to the home late Wednesday night. They contained the blaze within 10 minutes but had to wait until the house was ventilated and hot spots were put out before they could go inside and try to find the victim.

Weir said the residence burned to the ground except for two bedrooms in the rear of the property. He said the house appeared to belong to a hoarder. He said books, papers and file cabinets that filled the home created a high fuel load.

The cause of the fire and the woman’s cause of death were being investigated.
