MANNING, Iowa (AP) - Officials say one woman died in a house fire in rural Iowa last weekend.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that 47-year-old Julia Schlichte, of Manning, was found dead inside the home located about three miles northeast of town. Investigators say the fire that consumed the house has left it in complete disrepair.

Authorities say they are awaiting autopsy results to determine Schlichte’s cause of death. No other injuries were reported.

The sheriff says the source of the fire that occurred early Saturday morning remains under investigation, though foul play is not suspected.
