DANVILLE — The victim of the fire at 52 Pine St. Monday afternoon has officially been identified as Audrey Anzalone, 88.
The fire investigation is complete, according to State Fire Marshal J. William Degnan, Danville fire Chief Steve Woitkun and Danville police Chief Wade Parsons. The cause and origin of the fire remain undetermined.
Some 50 firefighters from nine towns battled the quick-moving fire that started at midday Monday.
Ronald Metcalfe, a neighbor, was in Anzalone’s home, delivering a meal, when he said the house suddenly was engulfed in flame. Metcalfe was able to escape, but heavy smoke and flames kept him and firefighters from rescuing Anzalone.
Degnan and Woitkun, in a written statement, reminded residents to maintain working carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, and to keep exits clear and accessible.
