SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Santa Ana firefighters wearing hazmat suits
had to climb over vegetation and trash piled 5 feet high to get to a
yard where a woman died in a chair amid debris with a kitten on her lap.

Orange
County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi (kahn-see-AHL'-dee) tells
The Orange County Register the woman in her 70s
was pronounced dead in her yard on south Rosewood Avenue Tuesday night
and no foul play is suspected.

Animal control officers searched
for cats Wednesday at three homes owned by the woman. They found two
dogs and more than 50 cats that will have to be trapped.

The woman
was apparently living in her car because the house and yard were so
full. It took hours to clear a path to remove her body.
