Officials identify woman killed in Prince George's County house fire

- Investigators have identified a 35-year-old mother as the woman who died from a fire in her historic Prince George's County home early Saturday morning. Officials say they did not find a smoke alarm in the home.

Prince George's County fire says Sally Ann Quesenberry died after a fire broke out in her home in Beltsville.

Investigators say they received calls from neighbors for a fire at the 11400 block of Howard Court at around 3:30 a.m.

Firefighters found Quesenberry inside her home by firefighters shortly after arrival and removed her from the home, where she was pronounced deceased.

Prince George's County fire investigators say Quesenberry was a mother of three children, who were staying with other family members the night of the fire.

According to investigators, heavy fire was coming from the two-story single family home. Prince George's County fire says because of the size of the fire, crews had to move from inside to the outside of the home to work to extinguish it.

According to officials, the home was built in the 1920s and was the original farmhouse on acreage of a development where single-family homes now exist off of Baltimore Avenue, behind Behnke Nursery.

Prince George's County fire says with the help of a Task Force, it took 60 firefighters nearly 90 minutes to extinguish the fire.

Fire officials say the cause and origin of the fire remains undetermined, and autopsy results are yet to be released.
