NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Officials in a central Oklahoma city have identified a woman who died following an early morning fire at her home.

Norman fire officials on Tuesday identified 56-year-old Eva Ann Stewart Tresner as the victim in last week’s blaze. They say she suffered extensive burns to more than 95 percent of her body. She was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

Deputy Fire Chief Jim Bailey says investigators still haven’t determined what caused the blaze. But they believe Tresner may have caught herself on fire early Friday while trying to extinguish a fire in a trash container.

An investigation is ongoing.
