    Coroner: Saxton-area fire deaths accidental

    The Huntingdon County coroner has ruled that the couple killed in a fire in Dudley before dawn Saturday died of smoke inhalation, and that their deaths were accidental. Brandon Ritchey, 36, and Heather Heaton, 27, were found at the bedroom door of their small modular home on Broad Top Mountain Road - one inside the bedroom and one outside - as if they had been sleeping, woke up and were trying to get out but were overcome, according to Paul Sharum.
