Sheriff's officials have identified the Gridley woman killed late Wednesday night in a house fire as 89-year-old Patricia Little.
According to Cal Fire the blaze started at Little's home on the 11000 block of Dewsnup Avenue in west Gridley around 10:45 p.m. When firefighters arrived on the scene, neighbors had pulled the woman out of the home and were using hoses to try and stop the fire from spreading.
Fire crews were able to stop the fire from spreading to the entire house and the fire was contained to the kitchen area, but Little and her two dogs were killed.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and the woman's name has not been released.
