Colonie police have identified the woman killed in a Latham fire late Tuesday.

They say she is 47-year-old Jennifer Moran. A cat also died in the fire.

The fire broke out at a home on George Street just before 11 p.m. Tuesday. The fire chief says the fire was put out in about a half-hour.

The fire chief says it was difficult to get into the building because an entrance was blocked, and they are working to determine what may have caused the fire. 

They say the home is a total loss. 

Investigators don't think the fire was criminal in nature, but they ask anyone with info to call (518) 783-2744, or send an anonymous tip to Capital Region Crime Stoppers.
