The Clark County Coroner's Office released Thursday the identity of a woman who was found dead in a burning home southwest of the Las Vegas Valley.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the woman's body was found inside a home that was on fire at 401 N. Spring St. in Sandy Valley on May 5.

It was not immediately clear at the time whether the person died as a result of the fire.

Clark County Fire Department said three canines were also found dead inside the home.
