Police identify house fire victim

The person who died in last week’s house fire in Lindstrom has been identified as 68-year-old Mary K. Brosious.

Lakes Area Police officers responded to the call at 12:49 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, and found the Olinda Trail residence filled with smoke and an actively burning fire inside.

The Lindstrom Fire Department located Brosious in the upstairs living room, where the blaze had been contained and appeared burning for several hours.

As of Friday night, the state fire marshall in its ongoing investigation remained certain that the cause of the fire was accidental, said Lakes Area Police Chief Kevin Stenson on Monday.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held for Brosious on March 10 at St. Bridget of Sweden Catholic Church in Lindstrom. Interment was at Fairview Cemetery in Lindstrom.
