BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland health officials are reporting the first heat-related death of the year.

The health department and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner announced Wednesday a 65-year-old woman died of heat-related causes in Anne Arundel County.

Deputy Secretary for Public Health Fran Phillips says the tragedy is a reminder about the dangers associated with hot weather that can increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
