CLEVELAND (AP) - Fire officials say a woman has died in a Cleveland apartment fire.

The blaze broke out Monday at around 6 a.m. at the Shaker North apartments.

A Cleveland Division of Fire spokesman says the woman, thought to be in her 80s, was the only person inside the third-floor unit. She was found unconscious in her kitchen when firefighters got to her.

Cleveland.com reports the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Medical Examiner’s Office is expected to release her name after her family has been notified.

Officials say the fire began in the living room and was contained to her unit. There were no other injuries reported.

The cause is under investigation.
