ORLAND, IN (WTVB) - A house fire east of Orland, Indiana has taken the life of a 73-year old woman. The Steuben County Sheriff’s Department says Sandra Campbell lived with other family members but was home alone Wednesday afternoon when the residence in the 5,000 block of North County Road 550 West became engulfed in flames. Once the blaze was extinguished, Campbell was found deceased inside the house.
Sheriff’s detectives and the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office were called to the scene to assist the Orland Fire Department along with the County Coroner’s Office, which ruled Campbell’s death as accidental caused by smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire still remains under investigation.
