MARLBORO, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say an elderly woman was killed and her housekeeper was injured when a fire broke out at a central New Jersey home.

Charles Webster, a spokesman for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, says the blaze at the Marlboro Township home broke out early Saturday, but further details were not immediately disclosed.

An 87-year-old woman died from injuries suffered in the fire, but her name was not released. Webster said the woman’s housekeeper suffered burns in the blaze and was being treated at a hospital, but further details were not disclosed.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
