BAXTER, Minn. (AP) - Authorities suspect a smoldering cigarette in a chair caused a fire that killed a 92-year-old Bagley woman this week.
The Clearwater County sheriff's office says Bagley firefighters pulled Edna Halvorson from her burning second-floor apartment Tuesday night.
Halvorson was flown to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, where she died.
 The fire was ruled accidental.
