The Rock County Coroner's Office is reporting a Town of Lima woman died Thursday and the cause of death was heat related.

Margaret Jurgans, 83 was found by her sister in the Town of Lima home they shared. The home had no air conditioning and no working refrigerator.

Jurgans died from a cardiac related condition with heat injury being a major factor in the death, according to a news release from the Rock County Coroner's Office.

Two other deaths in the county had heat as exacerbating factors, but not the main cause of death. Both occurred in the last two weeks.
