RUTLAND (AP) — Authorities say they are investigating the suspicious death of a woman found in a house fire in Rutland.

Firefighters came to the two-story home about 7 a.m. Friday after neighbors reported smoke coming from the structure. The woman was found on the first floor.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early said circumstances inside the house are considered suspicious, and state police have obtained a search warrant. Early said the state fire marshal and Rutland police and fire departments also are investigating. Early said the victim hasn’t been positively identified and the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that police issued a be-on-the-lookout alert for a Toyota Highlander seen in the area because they want to talk to the driver.
