MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- A Mount Kisco woman who died after being moved to a hospital due to her house's fire has been identified, according to multiple news reports.

The woman is 86-year-old Chrystine Nicholas and her husband, 93-year-old George Nicholas, each lived in the house, the reports state.

The Westchester County Medical Examiner's Office confirmed that a woman who was hospitalized in connection with the fire died but did not release further details. An autopsy on the woman will be conducted and more information may be released on Thursday, according to the office.

Westchester County Police personnel who speak with the press could not be reached for comment.

Mount Kisco Fire Chief Mario Muccioli told Daily Voice that dispatched occured shortly before 6 a.m. on Wednesday and that it took under 10 minutes to put at the fire.

The single-family house is a brown structure located behind a vacant commercial building, which in turn is at 540 E. Main St. The house is in a wooded enclave, with leaves largely obscuring a section with visible exterior damage.

The house is also located near the local BP gas station, which is off of East Main Street and near Spencer Street.

The couple's two sons told The Journal News that their parents raised the family in Bedford and resided in the house for around 15 years.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, Muccioli said. The fire chief also said that the man and woman were taken to Northern Westchester Hospital but could not confirm a fatality; the fire department's connection ends at that point. The woman was alive at the time of her transport to the hospital, according to Muccioli.

Firefighters from Bedford Hills, Chappaqua, Katonah and Ossining provided mutual aid, Muccioli said, adding that the Mount Kisco Volunteer Ambulance Corp (MKVAC) and Weschester County police were involved as well.
