A woman who was pulled from a house fire last week in Englewood has died of her injuries.
The 70-year-old was pronounced dead at 4:40 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
She was identified as Doretha Bowdry, the medical examiner’s office said. Autopsy results found she died of smoke inhalation and ruled her death an accident.
Bowdry, along with a 62-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman, were pulled out of a house fire about 8:20 p.m. Dec. 7 in the 5800 block of South Peoria Street, Chicago police and the medical examiner’s office said.
The man was in critical condition and the other woman was listed in good condition at the University of Chicago Medical Center, police said.
The cause of the fire appears to be accidental, police said.
