Coroner IDs Woman Killed In Normal Condo Fire

Aug 7, 2017

The McLean County coroner's office on Monday identified the 68-year-old woman who was killed in a fire at her Normal condominium building early Sunday.

The victim was Diana McLaren-Osburne, who lived in a condo at 1538 Hunt Drive in Normal. Preliminary autopsy findings show McLaren-Osburne died from probable carbon monoxide intoxication due to inhalation of smoke and soot from the fire, McLean County Coroner Kathleen Davis said in a statement.

Neighbors called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the two-story building, which has four units, including McLaren-Osburne's. She was found unresponsive in her kitchen and could not be resuscitated. The roof collapsed and the adjacent units were damaged.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
