BALDWIN, Pa. (AP) - The medical examiner has identified a woman found dead after a fire at her senior citizen’s high-rise near Pittsburgh, but the cause of her death and the fire remained under investigation.

Allegheny County authorities say the victim of the fire in Baldwin, just south of the city, is 73-year-old Sara Locante. She lived in a ninth-floor apartment of Baldwin Towers, a public housing building for older and disabled residents.

The fire was reported about 10 a.m. Saturday.

Nobody else was hurt in the fire.

The county fire marshal is investigating and attempting to determine whether cigarette smoking led to the fire.
