Woman dies in house fire

Carole Lynn Orr, 69, was found dead inside a house fire on Friday on the 8400 block of Leer Road in Pulawski Township in Presque Isle County, according to a news release from the county.

Firefighters from Posen Area Fire Rescue found the home engulfed in flames and immediately requested backup from the Rogers City Area Fire Rescue. High winds made the fire spread quickly, the news release said.

The fire was extinguished by 20 firefighters using 19,300 gallons of water.

The fire is not considered suspicious at this time, but remains under investigation by the Michigan State Police Fire Investigation Unit and the Presque Isle County Sheriff’s Office.

Orr was transported to Beck Funeral Home in Rogers City.
