August 6, 2018

HOUSTON, Pa. (AP) — A second person has died of injuries sustained in a fire in a western Pennsylvania mobile home.

The (Washington) Observer-Reporter reports that 62-year-old Saundra McLaughlin died shortly before 3:30 p.m. Sunday in West Penn Hospital.

The medical examiner’s office said she was found in her yards as her mobile home in Chartiers Township was engulfed in flames Friday afternoon.

Sixty-six-year-old Glenn McLaughlin, who also lived in the home, died Saturday at the hospital. A township fire official said two other people who lived there weren’t home when the flames broke out.

A state police fire marshal is investigating the cause of the blaze.
