DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 52-year-old Dedham woman who died in a house fire that also left five other people, including three firefighters, with minor injuries.

The Norfolk district attorney’s office says Lynne O’Brien lived in the two-family, two-story house on Harding Terrace where the fire was reported at around 5:30 Saturday morning. The prosecutor’s office said her death does not appear suspicious but it will be investigated by the state medical examiner.

O’Brien was found on the second floor where the fire was most intense. She was pronounced dead at Norwood Hospital.

Fire Chief William Spillane says two other residents who managed to get outside were treated for minor injuries at hospitals. Three firefighters also were treated for minor injuries.

The cause of the fire is being investigated state and local authorities.
