Fire claimed the life of a 101-year-old North Bend woman Saturday night.
Dodge County Sheriff Steve Hespen said Sylvia Slavik died in her home at 440 W. 11th Street.
The North Bend Volunteer Fire Department was paged to the scene at about 5:54 p.m. after a passerby saw smoke coming out of the attic, Hespen said.
Fremont Rural and Morse Bluff firefighters provided mutual aid.
Hespen said Slavik lived in the home by herself.
The State Fire Marshal’s Office investigated the blaze, but the cause was unavailable as of press time.
Hespen said the fire caused extensive damage to the interior of the home.
