Fatal fire in Caernarvon

Authorities are investigating the death of a woman who was found inside a burning home Friday afternoon, officials said.

The victim was tentatively identified as Michelle Taylor, 46, but we're told dental records will be used to confirm her identity.

Firefighters were dispatched around 5 p.m. for a report of smoke on the second floor of a home in the 100 block of Quarry View Drive in the Pennwood Farms development of Caernarvon Twp., Berks Co.

The first crews to arrive on the scene found smoke throughout the home and small fire in the master bedroom on the second floor, police said.

A woman in her mid-40s was found dead in the bedroom, said police, who have not yet released the victim's name.
