GRAND BLANC, Mich. (AP) -

Authorities say the body of a woman has been found after a house fire in the Flint area.

The Flint Journal reports crews responded Monday afternoon to the home in Grand Blanc and found the woman dead inside.

Authorities tell WNEM TV5 that the woman, 79-year-old Lois Edwards, lived alone.

Fire Chief James Harmes says the cause of the fire is under investigation, but it doesn't appear to be suspicious. On Wednesday, a state fire marshal will look over the scene to help determine a cause.

The house was heavily damaged by flames.
