Princeton Police Release Name In Fatal House Fire

Princeton Police have identified the person who died in the house fire on Saturday. 92-year old Joyce Des Jardins was pronounced dead at the scene following an early Saturday morning fire at a home in the 100 block of West Main St. in Princeton. A Princeton police officer and a fire fighter entered the residence and attempted to rescue Des Jardins, but zero visibility due to smoke made it almost impossible to locate her. Preliminary investigation shows a candle to be the likely source of the blaze. The house was a total loss.
