An 85-year-old woman and her live-in caregiver have died from injuries they suffered in a fire at a San Francisco mansion.

The San Francisco Chronicle says Marilynn Postley and 67-year-old Connie Yim died Tuesday.

Both suffered burns and smoke inhalation on Sunday night from a blaze at Postley's Pacific Heights mansion. The fire caused an estimated $25,000 in damage to the roof and a bedroom.

Postley was a San Francisco socialite who was married to financier and yachtsman Clarence Postley until his death in 1983.
