Friday update: The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has identified the body of the woman who died in a house fire in the wee hours of Thursday morning. The Sheriff’s Office identified the victim as Patrice Passino, 61. Her dog also died in the fire and was found close by.

Newport Fire received a call out for a fire at 3:19 early Thursday morning at 480 SE Johnston Lane. The fire was already burning so bright that it was seen by a resident clear across the river upstream from Idaho Point.

The first arriving engine worked to put the fire out, but was initially hampered by 50 foot flames impinging on the overhead power lines. The office of the Oregon State Fire Marshal and the Lincoln County Fire Investigation Team are conducted an investigation but the heat, spread and complete cunsumption of the home made tracing a cause impossible, according to investigators.
