Woman found dead in Fort Worth apartment fire identified

A woman who was found dead after an apartment fire near Hulen Mall last week was identified Tuesday as Ashlea Harris, 31.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office released Harris’ name but did not rule on the cause or manner of her death.

Harris was found dead in her bedroom at the River Ranch Apartments, 4701 King Ranch Road, at 8:17 a.m. Friday, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The fire was contained to a small area of the apartment and was extinguished in minutes, a Fire Department spokesman said earlier.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Fort Worth homicide Detective Jerry Cedillo at 817-392-4337.
