Woman rescued from Seattle house fire dies

SEATTLE — An 82-year-old woman rescued from her burning Seattle home and revived by firefighters has died.

A Seattle Fire Department spokesman said Anna Moore was trapped inside her home Tuesday afternoon when the fire broke out. Her 88-year-old husband made it outside and told firefighters his wife was still in the house.

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

KOMO-TV said her husband was hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday. He suffered smoke inhalation.

Investigators say the fire was started by improperly discarded smoking materials.
