The 45-year-old woman died of smoke inhalation when her home burned early Saturday, authorities said.
The 45-year-old woman who died in a south Minneapolis house fire early Saturday has been identified.
Jennifer Soumountha died of smoke inhalation when the 2 1/2-story house that she was renting with her family caught fire at around 4:30 a.m., according to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
Four others were taken to the hospital for treatment from the fire, which started on the porch and quickly engulfed the 112-year-old house.
The Minneapolis Fire Department said Monday that the cause of the fire has not been determined and remains under investigation.
According to property records, the owner of the house, Cy Ratsamy, who runs the nearby New Orient Market, did not have a license to rent the house out.
