COLLEGE STATION (July 25, 2014) The cause of a house fire earlier this month in College Station that left a woman and her two dogs dead can’t be determined because of the extensive damage to the home, investigators said.

The College Station Fire Marshal's Office told KBTX-TV in Bryan that an "extensive investigation" eliminated every possible ignition source in the home in the 1100 block of Eagle Avenue.

The cause of the fire was ruled undetermined.

Janet Davis, 48, and two dogs died in the early-morning fire on July 10.

It was the first deadly fire in College Station since August 2010.

Firefighters found Davis’ body in a second-floor room, which was difficult to reach because of damage to the stairs.

A ruling on the cause of Davis’ death was still pending Friday.
