(OAKTOWN) - An Oaktown woman is dead following a Sunday morning house fire.

At approximately 8:20 a.m., Oaktown-Bussreon Township and Washington Township Fire departments were dispatched to 308 Raymond Street.

Fire investigators believe the fire started in the living room where Rickard's body was found. No foul play is suspected.
