The Pasadena Fire Department is being blamed for failing to find a woman's body in a burned out garage.

According to an independent report, the city manager cites a lack of communication between commanders and sloppy search efforts.

Yolanda Sapetto's body wasn't discovered during two searches at a fire that engulfed a detached garage on San Marino Avenue back on July 31.

An insurance investigator eventually found it two days later.

Appropriate discipline is being left up to the fire chief.
