D.C. woman dies in NW apartment fire
A District woman was killed by a fire in her apartment Sunday night shortly before 11 p.m., Crime Scene reports.
Firefighters had difficulty entering the second-floor apartment in the 1700 block of S Street NW because of an "extreme clutter hoarding situation," said Pete Piringer, spokesman for D.C. Fire/EMS.
The woman was removed from her apartment and pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Piringer said the fire was started accidentally because of improperly extinguished smoking material.
The damage was estimated at $50,000.
