Authorities have released the name of a woman who died in a fire that heavily damaged a home she shared with her mother in Oskaloosa.

The fire was reported a little before 4 a.m. Thursday. Officials say the woman's mother fled to safety, but her daughter could not. She had a physical disability that required use of a wheelchair.

The Oskaloosa Herald says the victim was identified as Kathy Edgington.

The fire cause is being investigated.
