As more information about the early morning fire on Wednesday that killed Chrystine Nicholas in Mt. Kisco is released, more questions remain.

According to a report in The Journal News, sons of the  elderly couple George Nicholas (93) and his wife Chrystine (86) had lived in the house on Route 117 for about 15 years. Reports also indicate they owned the two industrial buildings situated in front of the house on the property.

The husband managed to escape the fire that totally destroyed the house. The damage is so severe that he will not be able to move back in according to fire investigators.

It is not known if the wife exited the house and then went back in again to look for a pet cat. It is believed she was overcome by smoke.

Emergency responders pulled her from the fire and she was later pronounced dead.

The couple had been transported to Northern Westchester hospital. The health status of George Nicholas has not been announced.

At this time the cause of the fire is thought to be electrical.
