But it's still not clear what sparked the blaze in Upper Freehold Township that broke out early Sunday.

Monmouth County prosecutors announced Wednesday that 57-year-old Kathleen Clark died of thermal burns and asphyxiation due to smoke inhalation.

Firefighters found her body in a bathroom shortly after they extinguished the blaze.

Prosecutors say the fire is not considered suspicious, and no other injuries were reported.
