Bergman, along with her husband, found dead in a house fire on Wednesday

An initial report by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s office states that Bergman died in her own residence on Wednesday. Her cause of death is unclear and an exam is still pending.

Fashion designer Sue Wong confirmed the news of Bergman’s death via a Facebook post on Thursday, in which she wrote that Bergman, along with her husband, Albert, and their cat, died in house fire.

“Their house was completely ablaze,” Wong added.

Los Angeles news anchor Christine Devine, with Fox 11, honored Bergman via Twitter.

“Sad to hear of the death of #DorisBergman a member of the Wednesdays child family… She was an event producer in Hollywood who included foster youth at her Oscars events. Doris, her husband attorney Albert Sassoe Jr, and their cat perished in a Mar Vista house fire…”

While in a Facebook post, alongside a news report, shared by the LAFD’s Facebook account on Wednesday confirms that “an elder man and woman and their cat perished early Wednesday morning in a #MarVista house fire” in a California residence that is registered under the hollywood publist Bergman’s name.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said that they were dispatched to investigate the residence after emergency services received a call from a landline number connected to the home in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

“Because the Caller ID feature of their wired telephone provided both a callback phone number and a definitive address, an LAFD crew was promptly dispatched to investigate, as dispatchers sought unsuccessfully to reconnect with the caller,” the fire department told.

An “intense blaze” that “largely involved the kitchen and living room,” was then put out by the department as all three were determined to be dead at that spot.

Bergman founded her celebrity consulting agency in 2004 and she was known for hosting style and gift suites in popular awards shows like the Emmy’s and Oscars too.
