LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police and fire investigators have ruled a fatal fire in a southwest Las Vegas home was accidental.
Clark County fire spokesman Scott Allison says a woman who died was a smoker and was still clutching a lighter when firefighters found her dead in bed a little before 5 a.m. in the house on Quarterhorse Lane.
The woman's name wasn't immediately released.
Firefighters also found a dog dead in the house when they responded to a report of smoke in the two-story house.
The fire was confined to the bedroom.
