VANCOUVER, Wash. — A woman was found dead inside a Vancouver home that caught fire early Saturday morning, fire officials said.

A neighbor called the Vancouver Fire Department around 2:20 a.m. to report a house fire at 14808 N.E. 83rd Street. The fire department was told someone may be inside. 

Arriving crews could see flames coming out of the first floor window of the two-story home. They quickly entered the building and found a woman dead on the first floor. 

The fire was under control within about 20 minutes. Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire as well as the woman's cause of death.

A second resident, who was not home when the fire happened, is receiving assistance from the American Red Cross.

A total of 19 firefighters with the city and county responded. None of them were hurt.
