Roslyn, NY – A woman was killed in a home explosion and fire on Thursday morning in Roslyn, officials said.

Multiple agencies responded to the explosion and fire in the 200 block of West Montana Avenue in Roslyn at approximately 7:30 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the Roslyn Fire Department.

“There were conflicting reports as to whether the home was occupied,” the release said. “Sadly, firefighters located the body of a woman in her 70s who died in the fire. Roslyn Fire extends our sympathies to the family who have requested privacy.”

The release said initial reports point to some type of propane explosion as the cause of the fire, and the cause is under investigation by the Kittitas County Fire Marshal.

It is the third fire the department has responded to in the past week related to snow loads and gas lines, the release said.

“Because propane sinks, it can move under snow and enter a home with no odor,” the department said. “Residents are encouraged to ensure they have working carbon monoxide alarms in their homes and basements.”

Roslyn Fire was assisted by Kittitas County Fire Districts 6, 3, and 7 as well as the Cle Elum Fire Department, Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office, Cle Elum Roslyn Police Department, Cle Elum Volunteer Fire Department, Puget Sound Energy, and the Kittitas County Fire Marshal.
