Woman becomes 6th person to die from Elkins fire


   ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) -- A state fire official says a woman whose four children and husband perished in a house fire last month in Elkins has died.
   Assistant fire marshal Mark Lambert says Jennifer Chamberlain died Tuesday at West Penn Burn Center in Pennsylvania.
   Chamberlain's four children and her husband, 29-year-old Alan Chamberlain, died from injuries suffered in the Oct. 28 fire.
   Chamberlain's brother, Jeff Hyde, was released from the hospital on Monday.
   The Fire Marshal's Office has said the fire began in a couch on a side porch. The cause hasn't been determined but the Fire Marshal's Office has said there's no evidence the fire was intentionally set.
