Detroit fire officials say an electrical problem is suspected of causing a house fire that killed a 74-year-old woman and injured three men.

Authorities tell WDIV-TV the fire broke out Saturday morning at a house on the city's west side. They say eight people lived at the house.

Firefighters say the blaze started in the woman's room. They say one tenant woke up smelling smoke and was able to warn other residents.

Officials say residents found her dead by the time they were
able to enter her locked room. Her name wasn't immediately released.
