Still No Conclusive Cause in Fatal Fire

Savannah fire investigators are still looking into a fire that killed a woman last month. On September 22, a fire broke out at a house on 35th and Jefferson, killing 54-year-old Juanita Gilbert.

Investigators believe Gilbert died from smoke inhalation.

Officials don't know the exact cause of the fire, but say they found a large number of cigarette butts in the room where the fire started.
