GRAND FORKS - A former Grand Forks Herald reporter apparently died in an early morning fire Wednesday in her home at 1104 Boyd Drive, one of her sons said.


Authorities have not made an official identification of the woman, whose body was recovered from a bedroom in the home, but the victim appeared to be Sue Ellyn Scaletta, 64.

"We believe it's her," son Kelly Scaletta said from his home in Chicago. "We don't know of anyone else who would be staying at the house."
