Crews were able to rescue the woman, but it was reported that she later died from her injuries at the hospital.

A dog also died in the fire.

A second alarm was dispatched bringing additional units into the city to be on stand by.

Crews were at the scene most of the night.

The American Red Cross is assisting 7 after the fire.
