Authorities identify woman who died Milwaukee house fire that injured 3 other people


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Authorities have identified a woman who died in a Milwaukee house fire.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports ( http://bit.ly/1teEiVz ) that 46-year-old Tammy Steele was the eighth person killed by fire this year in Milwaukee.

Firefighters arrived about 4 a.m. Saturday to find the first floor engulfed and one person trapped inside. They pulled Steele from the home but were unable to revive her. The victim's name has not been released.

Authorities say two residents suffered minor injuries, and a firefighter was treated after debris hit his helmet.

Acting Deputy Fire Chief Brian Smith says neither of the two smoke detectors in the home was working.

The cause remains under investigation. Six residents were displaced. Damage is estimated at $100,000.
