Woman killed, 3 others injured in Trenton house fire

TRENTON -

A woman was killed when flames tore through a Trenton home Saturday morning.

The fire broke out at the home on Cass Street around 2:30 a.m.

Neighbors have identified the victim as Catalina Marino. They say her 13-year-old son managed to escape through a back door, but suffered burns.

The home belonged to Marino's brother, Francisco. He and his wife were forced to jump from a second-floor window -- about a 25-foot drop to the sidewalk. He broke both legs and an arm, and his wife suffered a serious head wound.

The remnants of the charred home have been boarded up. The cause of the fire has not yet been identified, but fire officials believe it was accidental at this time.
