LODGEPOLE, Neb. (AP) - A county attorney said a fire in a trailer home killed a woman in the southern Nebraska Panhandle.

Firefighters were dispatched early Monday morning to battle the fire in Lodgepole.

Cheyenne County Attorney Paul Schaub said the body of 70-year-old Sandra Reichman was found inside the home after the fire. He said she was also known as Sandra Grabowski.

Schaub said an autopsy showed the woman died of heat and smoke inhalation.

Investigators said a space heater started the fire in the living room.
