CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A woman has died after a fire ravaged her Cedar Rapids mobile home.

City officials say 76-year-old Karen Jacobs died in a hospital Tuesday following the Monday fire.

Crews responded to the fire about 7:30 a.m. Monday and removed two people from the structure.

The Johnson County Medical Examiner’s Office says Jacobs died Tuesday at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

The other resident, 76-year-old Ronald Jacobs, was pronounced dead at the fire scene.

An investigation found the fire started in the living room but the cause of the fire is unknown due to the amount of damage in the room.
