Coroner releases names of elderly couple who died in fire

Posted: Updated:
CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) -

The Cumberland County coroner has confirmed the identities of an elderly couple who died in a fire Monday morning at their Lower Allen Township home.

Jack E. and Edna M. Bertolette died as the result of smoke inhalation, Coroner Charley Hall said Wednesday.

Both were found dead in a second-floor bedroom of their home in the 1600 block of Carlisle Road.

Edna Bertolette's body was recovered Monday night, and her husband's body was removed the following morning.

Officials believe the fire started in the basement, but because of the severe damage to the home they said they may never know the exact cause.

The fire has been ruled undetermined in origin.
