Cause 'Undetermined' in Deadly CS House Fire

COLLEGE STATION - Extensive damage at a College Station home has prevented fire investigators from finding out the cause of a fire that left the occupant dead.

According to the College Station Fire Marshal's office, an "extensive investigation" eliminated every possible ignition source in the home in the 1100 block of Eagle Avenue, so the fire's cause is being ruled "undetermined."

Janet Davis, 48, and two dogs died in the early morning July 10 fire. It was the first deadly fire in College Station since August 2010.

Davis' body was found in a second floor room. Firefighters had trouble getting to the second floor initially because of damage to the stairs.

The cause of Davis' death has not yet been determined by a medical examiner.
