Authorities are releasing the name of the 46-year-old Burlington woman who died after a weekend housefire. Cyd Richards was found inside her home on Sunday night as firefighters battled the fire.
She was taken to the Great River Medical Center where she died Monday morning. Richards was a well-known fry cook on the morning shift at a popular restaurant with a large breakfast crowd. A co-worker on the morning shift said Richards was liked by everyone, the customers and the staff.
Firefighters performed CPR on Richards before she was taken to the hospital. Firefighters responded to the fire around 10 P.M. on Sunday and fought the fire for several hours into the early hours of Monday morning.
