MILWAUKIE, Ore. (AP) - Fire officials say a woman pulled from a burning home in the Portland suburb Milwaukie has died.

She was pulled from the house Tuesday evening after her husband told arriving firefighters that she was still inside. They found her in a back bedroom and got her into the yard. She was hospitalized in serious condition. A fire department statement Wednesday said she had died.

Her name was withheld until relatives are notified.

Investigators say the blaze was caused by cooking and combustibles too close to the stove.
