Police in St. Lawrence County have released the name of the woman killed in a house fire earlier this week.
The sheriff's department says 77-year-old Sharon Anderson died after being trapped inside her residence on Old Canton Road in Dekalb. Responding crews were unable to locate Anderson, who was on the phone with dispatchers as flames and smoke filled the home.
The blaze initially broke out at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, which sent a total of six different fire departments racing to the scene.
Several dogs are believed to have perished in the fire, which remains under investigation this morning.
