EWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Honolulu Medical Examiner has identified the 90-year-old woman who died after an Ewa Beach house fire over the weekend.

Authorities say Lilian Fisher was found unconscious in the hallway of her home on Pupu Street as a fire burned in her Kitchen. Fire officials say she was not breathing and had no pulse when they found her.

The fire started just after 7 p.m. Saturday. She died at a nearby hospital following the incident.

Over 30 firefighting personnel responded to the two-alarm blaze.

"The fire was contained to a kitchen area but it was a full fire. Under a longer time, it could've enrolled the whole home," Capt. Jenkins of HFD said.

An investigation has been opened to determine if the fire caused the woman to lose consciousness, or if a medical condition did, and the kitchen fire started as a result.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
