The Davenport Fire Department is releasing the name of a person killed in a house fire. Fire marshal Mike Hayman says 34-year-old Stephanie Ford died in the west Davenport fire. She was renting the single-family house that burned.
Hayman says because Ford’s was an unattended death, an autopsy will be conducted this week. The fire, which started in the kitchen, was reported at about 6 o’clock Sunday morning. Flames were visible as crews arrived, but the fire was quickly knocked down. The cause is being investigated.
