Woman who died in Kodiak Island lodge fire was from Indonesia

Alaska State Troopers have released the name of a woman killed in a fire at a remote Kodiak Island lodge last week.

Silvana Sutanto, 59, of Indonesia, died June 2 in a fire at the Spirit of Alaska Wilderness Adventures Lodge on the western side of the island near the village of Larsen Bay. The lodge is in the historic Parks Cannery facility.

According to a trooper dispatch posted Tuesday, four guests were sleeping in a lodge cabin when the fire broke out.

Troopers wrote that two of the guests — Shaun Gozali, 30, of Indonesia and Taeri Kim, 33, of South Korea — escaped through a window. Danielle Gozali, 22, also of Indonesia, was pulled out of the burning structure by the lodge owner.

The three survivors were injured and transported via Coast Guard helicopter to the Kodiak hospital. Both Gozalis were flown to Seattle for further treatment.

The Indonesian and Korean consulates were notified of the fire. Troopers wrote that the investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.

Sutanto, the victim, ran five companies in Singapore, according to The Jakarta Post.

She also posted pictures from her international travels to her photography website and Instagram. Her final post on Instagram includes a location tag for Kodiak.
