Deadly South Burlington fire caused by smoking material

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Investigators are blaming a cigarette for the fire that killed a South Burlington woman last week.

Sally Walker, 58, was found dead after firefighters put out the blaze inside her home in the Dorset Farms neighborhood. Her body was discovered just a few feet from where it is believed the fire started in the living room.

Investigators have now ruled the fire accidental, saying it was caused by smoking materials. The medical examiner has not yet determined whether Walker died as a result of the fire or some other reason.
