Susan McMahon was found on the ground outside of a backyard shed that was fully engulfed in flames. The residence was her ex-husband's - where she had been staying with him. Her ex-husband, King County Fire and Rescue Deputy Fire Marshal Melvin McMahon was not home at the time assistance was called for. According to Mapquest, his station is 2 minutes from the home. It was that station that quickly responded to the fire.
