TWIN FALLS - The woman whom firefighters pulled from a burning home early Tuesday has died of her injuries.

Barbara K. Schaak, 74, of Twin Falls, died Wednesday at the University of Utah Hospital.

Arrangements are pending and will be announced by Rosenau Funeral Home in Twin Falls.

The fire was reported about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday at 1142 Kenyon Road, just outside city limits.

"When we arrived we found several rooms engulfed in flames," city spokesman Joshua Palmer said. Firefighters searched the home, found Schaak and took her out of the house.

She was initially taken to St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center.

On Thursday Palmer said he expected a report on the fire to be complete by Friday.
