        A Butler County woman was found dead Saturday after the home where she was house-sitting caught fire, authorities said.

        The body of Nancy Holt, 45, of Provident Drive in Crescentville, was found in the family room area of the house after the fire was extinguished, according to the Hamilton County sheriff's office.

        The Anderson Township Fire Department received a call at 2:06 p.m. that a brick, ranch-style house at 7893 Blackthorn Drive was on fire. It took firefighters an hour to control the four-alarm blaze, said Lt. Steve Ober of the Anderson Township Fire Department.

        The home owners, whom police didn't identify, were in Toledo at the time of the fire.

        The blaze remains under investigation. Fire officials did not say how Ms. Holt died or how long she had been dead.
