A 24-year-old woman died in an apartment fire Wednesday morning in Mouth Greenwood on the Southwest Side.
About 4:50 a.m., firefighters found her unresponsive on the bedroom floor of an apartment in the 4000 block of West 115th Street, according to Chicago fire spokesman Larry Langford.
The fire started in the kitchen where she was cooking, causing heavy smoke in the unit.
Paramedics rushed the woman to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead, police said. The unit had working smoke alarms, Langford said.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office hasn’t released details on the woman’s death.
