Woman dead after being pulled from Phoenix condominium fire
PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix firefighters have recovered a woman’s body from a fire in a condominium.
Fire officials say the blaze broke out Monday around 5:30 a.m. inside a condo near 28th Street and Greenway Road.
Amid heavy smoke and fire, arriving crews entered the home and found a 53-year-old woman.
Despite resuscitative efforts, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
A male occupant of the home reported that he awoke to the fire and tried to wake up the woman. When she didn’t move, he went to get a fire extinguisher but couldn’t re-enter the home because of the fire’s intensity.
He was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation but is expected to be OK.
Six residents in nearby units displaced by the fire may be able to return later Monday.
