One person dead in North Seattle condo fire


SEATTLE -- An elderly woman was killed in a condo fire Tuesday morning in Seattle's Wedgwood neighborhood.

It happened around 2:30 a.m.when crews responded to a suspicious odor call. 

It wasn't until firefighters arrived on the scene that they realized there was a small fire inside the woman's condo unit.

Seattle Fire Chief Ben Haskell says a sprinkler in the unit was able to put the fire out, but firefighters found the woman unconscious inside her condo.

Crews performed CPR but were unable able to revive her.

Neighbors say the woman lived alone.

The cause of death was determined to be accidental.
