No evidence of crime in Butler County fatal fire

WAYNE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Butler County fire investigators found no evidence of criminal intent in a blaze that left one person dead.

Fire crews were called to the 4100 block of Hamilton Eaton Rd. in Wayne Township shortly before midnight Friday for report of a fire.

Firefighters found resident Angela Tipton, 40, dead inside her home.

Deputies arrived on scene first but were unable to enter into the home due to the conditions of the fire.  Fire crews arrived soon after and were able to quickly extinguish the fire.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but investigators say the fire started in the area of the kitchen stove.

The mobile home was equipped with one smoke alarm, but it did not appear to be in working condition.

This is the 13th fire-related fatality reported to the Division of State Fire Marshal in 2012.
