Margaret S. Riley, 86, was killed in a fire that destroyed her single-story home on Spring Valley Road Sunday night north of Cuba, fire officials said.
New Hudson Fire Chief Dave Vogel said the fire was reported around 9:20 p.m. and the first fire units that arrived found the rear of the home engulfed in flames. The victim was found dead in her bedroom after the fire was extinguished, Vogel said. Coroner Rex McIntosh of Cuba ordered an autopsy at the Monroe County medical examiner's office in Rochester.
Vogel said Allegany County fire investigators attributed the blaze to an electrical problem.
