Investigators on Monday released the name of a woman who died in a house fire in the Pink area on Sunday and a GoFundMe page has been set up to help her family with funeral expenses and to recover from the house fire.

Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer identified the woman as Mary Katherine “Kathy” Martindale, 59.

The fire occurred Sunday at a mobile home on Thunder Road, located south of SH 9 and Okay Road.

Palmer said the fire started in the kitchen area of that home, which is where Martindale was found.

Pink Firefighters responded to the scene and the Oklahoma State Fire Marshal's office is investigating cause of the blaze.

Palmer, who said there were three people inside when the fire broke out, said the woman's husband was able to exit through a door at one end of the home, while another man — a family friend — escaped through a a window at the opposite end of the home.

Official cause of the fire is awaited, but Palmer said the woman was reported to be cooking at the time of the blaze.

Martindale's niece, Brandi James, has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay funeral expenses and to help Martindale's husband, Larry, who lost his wife and all of his belongings in the fire. James, on the GoFundMe page, says that they believe Martindale may have had a heart attack while cooking, which caused the food to catch on fire.

An official cause of her death is also awaited from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The Red Cross also was called in to assist the family.
