OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a 20-year-old woman died in a Shelton house fire after inhaling toxic material as the blaze burned.

The Olympian reports (https://goo.gl/4g2UUL ) that the Mason County Coroner’s Office has identified the woman as Kathleen Lowther, who was a resident of the home. Coroner Wes Stockwell says Lowther died from asphyxia after inhaling the toxic material.

Fire crews had responded to the home Monday night. The two-story residential fire had spread to the second level, and was caused by unattended food on the stove.

The two people who escaped the fire were treated and released at an Olympia hospital.
