Published Sep. 3, 2005

A woman who died in a fire at Suncoast Mobile Home Park has been identified as Mary Lynn Whitcomb, 47, according to the State Fire Marshal's Office. Investigator Robert Thompson said the cause of the blaze is still unknown, although he has pinpointed its origin in the master bedroom. Neighbors said Whitcomb worked at Wendy's restaurant in Crystal River and had lived in the park for about a year and a half. The July 12 fire gutted the double-wide mobile home and caused heat damage to several others. The cause is still under investigation, Thompson said.
