WINCHESTER - A 75-year-old woman was killed today when flames raced through her double-wide mobile home in Winchester, a spokeswoman said.

Firefighters were dispatched at 6:25 a.m. to the 33900 block of Clinton Avenue, where firefighters saw the home engulfed in fire. The woman was found inside and pronounced dead at the scene, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson said.

The woman's name was not immediately released by the coroner's office.

A man and woman who also lived at the Clinton Avenue home were taken to a hospital for minor smoke inhalation. Their relationship with the woman was not disclosed. The blaze was contained in half an hour but the home was destroyed, Hendrickson said.

A cause was under investigation, she said.
