Authorities identified the woman killed in a Rockford-area house fire.

Beverly Kay Combs, 65, was trapped inside her home Friday, June 2, on Fricke Court as firefighters approached the burning building, according to a Kent County Sheriff's Department news release.

Firefighters were not able to save Combs.

A neighbor described Combs as "wonderful and caring."

The cause of the fire has not yet been identified.

Investigators earlier said when they arrived, Combs' husband was in the front yard and said his wife still was inside. He was treated for smoke inhalation.
