Sixth Precinct officers responded to the home after a 911 caller reported a fire at the location. Nine members of an extended family were inside the residence at the time of the fire. 

After the fire was extinguished, Majesty was found inside the residence. She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

A 34-year-old woman, a 57-year-old man, a 4-year-old girl, and a member of Medford Fire Department were transported to area hospitals for treatment of minor injuries, police said.
