The Monroe County Sheriff reported a fatal fire in the 10000 block of Darling Road in Milan Wednesday.

The Milan Area Fire Department was dispatched to the area around 3 p.m. for a field fire. The firefighters found a wooded area fully-engulfed.

Soon after arriving on the scene, firefighters located a deceased female near the eastern edge of the wooded area.

Upon investigation it was determined the female, identified as Anna Eliva Pinto, 76, of 10460 Darling Road, had been working in the area, burning brush in several small piles. Due to the wind, the fires grew out of control.

It is not known if there are more victims. The incident remains under investigation.
