Woman killed in San Mateo fire identified, Red Cross aids displaced relatives

SAN MATEO — The San Mateo Coroner’s Office identified 85-year-old Susana Tonga as the woman who died in an early-morning house fire Tuesday.
Tonga was discovered by San Mateo firefighters, who told CBS San Francisco they received a 911 call describing smoke and flames rising from a house in the 100 block of South Humboldt Street around 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 19.
“We went in and located her,” San Mateo Consolidated Fire Department fire marshal Robert Marshall told the station. “We brought her out and attempted CPR but we were unsuccessful and she passed away at the scene.”
Tonga, a grandmother, lived with seven relatives who were displaced by the fire and did not report injuries.
The fire was contained shortly after crews arrived.
The cause remains under investigation.
