A woman's body was found inside a home that burned down Monday, authorities said.

Her identity has not been released, Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth said. The medical examiner's office in Oklahoma City will have to identify the woman from dental records, Booth said Tuesday.

The fire was reported about 7 p.m. Monday at 39056 Mars Hill Road, Booth said. The home is north of Macomb. The woman, who appeared to be in her early 80s, was found dead near the front door of the home.

“We don't know what caused the fire,” Booth said.

The woman's sister, who lives at the home, was not home at the time, he said.

A state fire marshal investigator was investigating the fire late Monday, Booth said. He said the cause is undetermined. Booth did not have a damage estimate.

Luke Tallant, state fire marshal's spokesman, said a cause had not been determined Tuesday.
