ARDMORE, OK -- Authorities have released the name of the woman found dead in her Ardmore home after a fire Tuesday night.

Nellie Brodus is believed to be the 82-year-old woman killed after the fire department says she got too close to a gas heater and caught the clothes she was wearing on fire.

It happened on the 200 block of 7th Avenue Northwest.

Fire crews initially thought the house was abandoned but when they arrived, neighbors told them someone might be inside.

They say the case is still under investigation.
