PORT CRANE, N.Y. -- A 71-year-old Broome County woman is dead after a fire in her home Tuesday.

Firefighters were called to the scene on Tunnel Road in Port Crane around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Crews arrived to a fully engulfed home and found the body of the homeowner, Barbara Cadwell, inside.

The cause of death was asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Fire officials say the fire started in a wood stove.
