SUDDEN VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Washington state say a 58-year-old woman is dead following a house fire in Sudden Valley.

Authorities say an autopsy showed that Elizabeth Wilkenson suffocated in the fire on Saturday.

Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo tells The Bellingham Herald (https://bit.ly/2kHfiMd) that two others in the house escaped the fire and were taken to a hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation and burns.

Their names and ages haven’t been released.

Elfo says officials are investigating to determine the cause of the fire. A damage estimate wasn’t available.
