BOONE COUNTY, Ky (FOX19) - A woman killed in a house fire in Union, Kentucky last Tuesday has been identified.

The Boone County Coroner says Linda Jean Anderson, 59, of Caitin Drive died in the fire.

The cause of her death is still pending.

Anderson’s body was recovered four days after the fire.
