OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Firefighters have found the body of an 82-year-old Omaha woman inside a burning house.

The fire was reported about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in central Omaha, and fire officials say it was under control by 6:45 a.m. The cause is being investigated.

Authorities haven't release the woman's name. Reid Jacobson told the Omaha World-Herald that his mother, Helen Jacobson, lived alone at the house.

An autopsy has been ordered.
