I looked up the death registration of Cora Black - following is the information on the reg.
Full Name: Black, Cora E
Permanent Residence: Prince Rupert
Racial Origin: Irish
Birthplace: Arlington, Oregon, USA
Date of Birth: (left blank)
Trade: Hotel Proprietress
Date last worked: February 5, 1943
Total years in this occupation: 30
Husband: Peter Black
Father: (FN) Unknown (LN) Quiner
Mother: (FN) Hester (LN) Unknown
Relationship to deceased: Son

Buried: Fairview Cemetary, Prince Rupert
Date of Death: February 5, 1943

There is no mention on the death registration of her death being the result of a fire. The registration does have an area to be filled out if the death was the result of external causes (violence) - Accident, suicide or homicide. This area is blank.
Peter Black, Cora Black's husband, died in December 1926 (age 59). He had been in BC for 17 years and in Canada for 40 years, having been born in Scotland.
If they were married in BC, it was after 1925 so it seems unlikely. His death registration lists his occupation as hotel proprietor at the Central Hotel in Prince Rupert.
I hope this helps - I did take a photocopy of the death registration. If you want it, email me an address and I will mail it to you.
