A Sunday evening Oakhurst apartment fire apparently claimed a city woman’s life, investigators said.
Johnstown fire crews were dispatched to a fire at Building 8 in the housing project Sunday and had to battle flames inside before dousing the blaze around 6 p.m.
A state police fire marshal was at the scene Sunday night, but the cause was believed to be accidental. Cambria County Coroner Dennis Kwiatkowski said the young woman suffered burns and apparent smoke inhalation.
He did not list the woman’s name, noting all next of kin had not yet been notified.
The woman was believed to be the only person in the home at the time of the fire. She lived there alone, Kwiatkowski added.
An autopsy is being scheduled for Monday.
