Fulton medical examiner identifies woman who died in East Point fire

The first of three victims in an East Point house fire has been identified, officials say.

The Fulton County medical examiner said 51-year-old Andrea Lynn Steed was a resident of the Hogan Street home, where three people died Tuesday.

Officials still don't know the cause of the fire that ripped through the ranch-style house, causing the roof to partially collapse to the main floor.

East Point’s interim fire Chief William Ware said much of the main floor of the home collapsed into the basement and investigators couldn’t know whether Steed had been on the main floor of the home or in basement.

Investigators found two additional victims Wednesday while sifting through the debris, but the other two victims have not yet been identified.

Neighbor Ellious Andrews previously told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he got a phone call from another neighbor telling him about the blaze, and he could see the flames high in the air. Andrews didn’t know those in the home well, but hoped everyone had made it out. He later learned only some of those in the home made it out alive.

Two people, a man and woman whose names were not released, were able to escape from the burning home through different windows, Ware said.
