Woman dies in Kenton house fire
Portland Fire and Rescue investigators are looking for the cause of a Thursday night North Portland house fire in which a woman died.
Arson investigators have asked the Portland Police Bureau's homicide detectives to look into the fire that damaged a house in the 8200 block of North Wabash Avenue, in the Kenton neighborhood.
The victim's name has not been released. The state medical examiner will do an autopsy before releasing her name.
