NEVADA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have identified the woman whose body was found in the charred wreckage of her mobile home in central Iowa's Story County.

Authorities say 27-year-old Katelyne Pratt was alone in her home in Nevada (nuh-VAYE'-duh) when the fire started Tuesday.

The home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. Pratt's body and that of a dog were found inside later.

Nearby homes suffered some heat damage, but no other injuries have been reported.

Authorities are still trying to determine the cause of Pratt's death.
