The name of the central Iowa woman who was killed in this week’s house fire has been released. She is identified as 49-year-old Theresa Holder of Nevada.
The body of Holder was discovered by Nevada firemen inside the living room of an upstairs apartment at 634 Fourth Street. Nevada firemen received the call shortly before 2:30 Wednesday afternoon with flames and smoke coming from the apartment facility. In a press release released yesterday, Nevada Fire Chief Dana Wipperman and Police Chief Michael Tupper stated that the preliminary findings indicate that the incident was not the result of any criminal activity.
The investigation into the fire at Nevada is continuing by both departments. The State Fire Marshall and State Medical Examiner’s office have been called in to assist.
