A 3-year-old child pulled from a fire at a Fort Worth apartment on Monday has died, authorities confirmed Thursday.

The child, 3-year-old Aaliyah Anderson, died Wednesday morning following the incident at an apartment community in the 9000 block of Brian Way Circle.

Anderson was rescued after first responders learned that a child may have been trapped in a back room of the burning apartment unit. Anderson was taken to Cooks Children's Hospital in critical condition, a fire spokesman said.

No other injuries were reported.

The Red Cross was helping the five people who were displaced from the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
