NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a woman killed in a house trailer fire in Jessamine County.

Media outlets report Jessamine County Deputy Coroner Lance Roe identified the victim as 63-year-old Jane Ellen Poirer. Roe says she was widowed and lived alone.

The cause of Saturday’s fire that destroyed the home remains undetermined.

Neighbor Tim Kelly says he was watching television when he looked out a window and saw flames coming out both sides of the victim’s home. Kelly says he unsuccessfully tried to enter the home.

Kelly says Poirer had not lived in the neighborhood for very long.
