A neighbor reported the fire by calling 911. Multiple fire units responded. It all happened along Bliss Lane. Officials say fire consumed two sides of the house, so firefighters had to knock it down from the outside. Flames extended from the ground floor to the attic.
"Our hearts go out to the family. It's always a sad day when, you know, we find someone that's been hurt or killed or injured," said College Place Fire Department Captain Jim Hays.
The exact cause of the death and fire is under investigation.
