KINGMAN, Ariz. — Authorities in northwestern Arizona are investigating the
discovery of a dead body after a fire at a Kingman home.
Mohave County Sheriff’s detectives responded to a fire about 3:30 a.m. Friday
and say the blaze started within the home’s swamp cooler.
After the flames were extinguished, authorities say the body of a woman was
found inside the home.
She’s been identified as 57-year-old Kimberly Ann Sherwood.
Sheriff’s officials say Sherwood lived at the home along with her boyfriend and
her two young grandchildren.
Authorities say Sherwood and her boyfriend were able to get the two children

results are pending.
