HARTSBURG, Mo. (AP) — Investigators are still trying to determine what caused a house fire that killed a central Missouri woman.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday said Kathy Pruitt died in the fire at a home east of Hartsburg that she owned with her husband, Robert Pruitt.
The Missouri State Fire Marshal’s Office said investigators haven’t determined a cause but nothing suspicious has been found.
The fire was reported by a passerby Monday morning. Pruitt was found dead in the living room. Three dogs also died in the fire.
