Authorities Sunday are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found in a home that burned in Lake Forest.

The fire in the 21000 block of Midcrest Drive was reported at 9:56 p.m. Saturday, according to Orange County Fire Authority spokesman Capt. Sean Doran.

Doran said it was unclear if the woman died from the fire or from other causes. The death was being investigated by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

The woman’s age was not immediately available. Her name was withheld pending notification of next of kin.

It took firefighters just over 90 minutes to put out the blaze inside the two-story home.
