A 70-year-old Lodgepole woman has died following an overnight trailer fire in Cheyenne County.
County Coroner Paul Schaub says Sandra Reichman (Grabowski) died from heat and smoke inhalation. He says the fire was reported around midnight, and after the blaze was extingushed, her body was found by first responders.
The Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s Office says the origin of the fire was a space heater in the living room, and was determined to be accidental in nature.
Responding agencies included the Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Office, Chappell and Lodgepole Volunteer Fire Departments, Region 21 Emergency Management, Regional West Medical Center Ambulance, and the Nebraska State Fire Marshal’s Office.
