An elderly Strawberry Mansion woman was killed and her housemate was injured this morning in a house fire.
Emergency crews were called to a two-story, brick row house on Stanley Street near Norris just before 9 a.m., said fire chief Richard Davison. Firefighters got the blaze under control by 9:10 a.m., Davison added. But as firefighters combed through the wreckage, they found Martha Frazier, 92, dead in a second-floor bedroom.
Paramedics rushed a man neighbors identified as Frazier's housemate to a local hospital. His name, age and condition weren't released. Investigators have not yet determined the fire's cause.
The death marks the 24th fire fatality so far this year; the city had 25 fire fatalities in 2012, Davison said.
