Fatal Fire

An early morning house fire has claimed one person in Toledo.

According to authorities, a Toledo Fire Department crew was dispatched to a report of the structure fire at 4:12 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 26 Tom Jack Road in Toledo.

Emergency teams from Newport, Depoe Bay, and Siletz Fire Departments, and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.

Once crews were able to suppress the blaze, fire crews discovered one deceased adult in the building. The identity of the individual has not yet been released.

The Lincoln County Fire Investigation Team has been deployed and is working to determine the cause of the blaze and the cause of the adult's death.

No foul play is suspected at this time.

Authorities late Wednesday identified the person killed in the fire as Betty Sue Mcgregor, 84, of Toledo.
