A woman in her 70's is dead, after a house fire in West Valley City claimed her life early Tuesday morning. Police have identified the woman as Co Hoai Tran. Police say she lived along and believe the death was a result of a suicide. Neighbors called 911 to report the fire around 5 a.m., but by the time crews arrived on the scene they saw smoke and flames billowing out of the building. A bystander told crews Tran was still inside, and crews located her body in the bathroom.
The damage was contained primarily to the front of the home, and is estimated to cost $80,000 to repair.
