A woman was killed today when a fire started in the bedroom of her Covington home, according to the Kent Fire Department.

The blaze was reported about noon in the 16600 block of Southeast 279th Place. When firefighters arrived, Capt. Kyle Ohashi said the homeowner met them outside and said he had been unable to reach his wife because the hallway was too full of smoke.

No signs of fire were visible from outside the home and firefighters quickly extinguished a fire in a second-story bedroom, Ohashi said. The woman’s body was found in the bedroom.

The man was not injured.

Investigators have not yet determined a cause of the fire.
