CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a woman who died after a fire at her condominium complex in southwest Cedar Rapids.

She was identified as 61-year-old Toni Cooley. Firefighters encountered her in a doorway as they responded to the blaze Tuesday. She was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries have been reported.

The Cedar Rapids Fire Department says the fire erupted in Cooley’s living room and likely was started by discarded smoking materials.
