A 74-year-old woman has been identified as the second individual killed as a result of a Canyon Country house fire that broke out Saturday morning, officials said.
Marjorie Halio, of Canyon Country, has been identified as the woman who was killed in her Canyon Country home Saturday after a fire broke out, according to officials with the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office.
Marjorie, along with her 82-year-old husband Bernard Jack Halio, died from thermal and inhalation injuries suffered during the fire. She had just turned 74 years old the day prior on Friday, according to officials.
The fire was first reported at about 11:42 a.m. Saturday on the 28000 block of Flowerpark Drive in Canyon Country, according to officials with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

“We had heavy smoke showing from a bedroom window,” said Ed Pickett of LACoFD at the time of the incident, adding that people were reportedly still inside the house.
After firefighters searched the home, they found the Halios inside the structure, according to Fire officials.
The two elderly individuals were rescued from the house by firefighters with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
While Marjorie died at the Canyon Country home, Bernard was transported to a local hospital in “extremely critical condition,” where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The fire was later deemed to have been an accident, and the case had been closed as of Wednesday morning.Do you have a news tip?
