(BLOOMINGTON) - DNA testing will be done to confirm the identity of the woman who died in a mobile home fire in the 1600 block of North Willis Drive in Arlington Valley Mobile Home Park.

Officials believe it was 78-year-old Audrey Hillenburg, who lived in the mobile home on Lot No. 76, that died in Tuesday night's fire.

Monroe County Coroner Nicole Meyer says the woman's family has been notified and DNA testing to confirm identification is underway.

Meyer says an autopsy was conducted Wednesday, but the manner of death could not be determined.

The State Fire Marshal and firefighters were on the scene until late Wednesday afternoon attempting to determine what started the fatal fire.

Firefighters were called to the blaze at at 8:33 p.m. Tuesday. While crews were en route, they received reports of a person possibly trapped inside.

When firefighters arrived more than half of the mobile home was engulfed in flames.

Firefighters who entered the burning home were confronted with heavy flames and smoke. It took firefighters several attempts before they could gain entry and find the woman.

It took firefighters around 15 minutes to put out the fire.
