TEMPLE CITY, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County authorities say a woman has been found dead inside a Temple City home that was partially destroyed by fire.

Crews discovered the body after knocking down the flames Monday night at the two-story home on Golden West Avenue.

Officials say packrat conditions inside complicated the firefighting effort.

The victim, described as a woman in her 60s, was not identified.

It took 45 firefighters about a half-hour to contain the blaze.

The cause is under investigation.
