Posted by wlpo on March 23, 2010

An investigation is underway after a rural Kinsman woman was killed in a fire.

50 year old Sandra Yard was pronounced dead just after midnight this morning.  Investigators say she was found on her porch floor by firefighters.

A driver called in the fire around 11:30 last night.  The home is on Kinsman Road.  Grundy County Sheriff’s deputies were first on the scene and heard smoke detectors going off but said they couldn’t get inside right away.

The fire remains under investigation.  The State Fire Marshall’s Office is helping to find out the cause.
