Authorities say Dale Ann Fussell, 64, died in the blast that destroyed the single-story duplex yesterday.

Maine officials have identified the woman killed in an explosion at a Bath duplex as Dale Ann Fussell, 64. Fussell's identity was released by the State Medical Examiner's Office.

Fussell lived in one unit of the single-story building, which was destroyed in a blast set off by a propane leak. Officials say the leak occurred in a gas line outside the unit next to Fussell's.

The occupant of that apartment, Kenneth Hooper, had left for work a half-hour before the building exploded.

Investigators are still trying to determine the exact cause of Fussell's death.
