GUN LAKE (WKZO) -- An autopsy is scheduled on the body of 81-year-old Emma Jane Evans who died in a raging house fire, fanned by hot winds coming off Gun Lake Wednesday afternoon.
Evans was reportedly recovering from an injury that may have prevented her from escaping the burning lakefront cottage on England Drive.
Witnesses said the fire trucks had a tough time getting to the scene, and then putting water on the burning home, as the hot winds whipped the flames.
Heat from the fire melted the siding on the homes on either side.
The State Fire Marshal has been asked to investigate to find the cause.
