A fire that killed a 47-year-old woman on May 29 may have been caused by a defective dishwasher, according to local authorities. New Jersey authorities are still looking into the cause of the fire. They have yet to release any additional information as to the make or model of the defective product.
Firefighters responded to the emergency call early in the morning of May 29. They found the victim unresponsive lying on her couch, and rushed her to a local hospital. She was later pronounced dead, with the cause of death attributed to smoke inhalation by preliminary autopsy findings. There is no word on how much damage the fire may have done to the property.
