State officials say Lynn Ring, 69, died at the scene and her 70-year-old husband, John Ring, was taken to the hospital with burns on his hands.

BRISTOL, Maine (AP) _ The Maine fire marshal's office is investigating a fire in which a woman was killed and a man was injured.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says the fire broke out in the attached garage of a house at about 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

McCausland says 69-year-old Lynn Ring died at the scene. Her body was found in the garage. Seventy-year-old John Ring was taken to the hospital with burns to his hands.

The fire started in the garage. The garage and a vehicle were destroyed.

Investigators say firefighters prevented the fire from causing significant damage to the home, which was built two years ago after a fire had destroyed the previous residence. The cause of that fire in 2011 was never determined.
