When firefighters arrived on scene they found the husband and mother outside of the home, they then learned that a third person was still inside.
Firefighters later found the 51-year-old woman dead inside the house, which was engulfed in flames when they arrived around 9:35 p.m.
Investigators believe the "cause appears to be careless candle use."
