COPY-Authorities release ID on S. Ill. fire fatality

VIENNA, Ill. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 52-year-old woman who died after a fatal house fire in far-southern Illinois.

Cora Roe died in the Vienna fire.

Johnson County coroner David Rockwell tells WSIL-TV that Roe had mobility problems, which may have made it more difficult for her to escape the flames. She was the only person in the home at the time.

Authorities still haven't said what started Sunday evening's fire.

Vienna is about 30 miles southeast of Carbondale.
