Perry woman dies in early-morning house fire

November 6, 2012


A 64-year-old Perry woman died early Tuesday morning during a house fire, Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig said.

Mary Quezada was found dead in a home at 209 Main St. when emergency crews arrived shortly before 9:30 a.m.

An autopsy will be performed, but Herrig said officials anticipate the cause of death will be smoke inhalation. No one else was home during the fire, which Herrig said appeared to be accidental.

Multiple crews assisted during the fire. Herrig said they expected the house to be declared a total loss.
