Phoenix Fire Department officials say one woman has died after a house fire early Thursday morning.
The fire broke out at a home near 44th Avenue and Bell Road around 1:45 a.m.
When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke and flames coming out of a home along Keating Circle. At that point, crews rushed to evacuate everyone out of the home, where they found a woman who needed assistance. That woman was rushed to a nearby hospital in extremely critically condition. but police later confirmed she died from her injuries. Two others were listed as being in stable condition after rushing out the backyard.
An investigation into how the fire started is underway.
“At this time, the fire will be under investigation, but it’s a tri-level home, and we do have damage to the very top floor,” said Capt. Kimberly Ragsdale.
Officials say two other people live in the home, but were not there at the time of the fire.
No names have been released in this case.
