One dead in Laurel house fire

By Washington Post editors

Prince George's County fire investigators have begun a probe into what caused a Laurel house fire that killed a female Monday, authorities said.

The fire occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 6700 block of Brooklyn Bridge Road, authorities said. Firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from a one-story home and fire in the basement. After extinguishing the blaze, firefighters found a female dead in the basement.

Officials have not yet identified the victim. The cause of the fire is also under investigation.
