A woman died Tuesday morning after being found inside a burning condominium building in Northeast Dallas, authorities say.
The fire was reported shortly after midnight at the Meadows North Condominiums in the 8000 block of Meadow Road. Firefighters were told people were trapped in the burning 2-story building, officials said.
A Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman said firefighters found the body of an unresponsive elderly woman inside one of the units. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Authorities have not yet released her name or cause of death.
No other injuries were reported.
Investigators said the fire appeared to have ignited near a kitchen area, spread vertically into the ceiling and into the attic space before spreading further.
