PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities are investigating the cause of a deadly apartment fire in north Phoenix.

The Fire Department says a woman in her 50s died as a result of the fire in a first-floor apartment early Friday morning.

No other injuries were reported.

Fire Capt. Rob McDade says firefighters broke open the smoke-filled apartment’s front door, found the woman inside and got her out but were unable to revive her.

Fire crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to other units but some sustained smoke and water damage.

Diana Rodriguez of the American Red Cross says the organization is assisting several people displaced by the fire.

The fire was near 19th and Dunlap avenues.
