Woman is found dead inside burning house in Mid-City

A 38-year-old woman was found dead Saturday inside the bedroom of a burning house in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles, authorities said.

Firefighters used gas-powered rotary saws to open the structure in the 2600 block of South  Garth Avenue, where they found the woman's body about 10 minutes after arriving at the smoky scene, said Erik Scott, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The victim was found in a bedroom in the rear of the residence, near Reynier Park, just south of the 10 Freeway and east of Robertson Boulevard, Scott said.
