Athorities Identify Fire Victims and Name Cause
Coos Bay Fire officials say a heater was the cause of a blaze that claimed the lives of two people earlier this week. 79-year-old William Easley and 64-year-old Helen Becker died in the fire that started in a separate room from where the couple was found. Fire Chief Mark Anderson says a malfunctioning heater or combustible materials placed too close to the heater likely ignited the blaze. The fire at 1840 South 19th in Englewood was called into the department around 1:30 in the morning Monday. After arriving, neighbors notified firefighters that the home’s occupants were unaccounted for. Fire officials say there were no smoke alarms located inside the house.
