Rome, NY (WIBX) - A 93 year-old woman was found dead after firefighters responded to a fire in her Rome apartment.

The fire broke out yesterday afternoon at 3:11, at the Rose Garden Apartments located at 1500 Black River Boulevard.

Rome Assistant Fire Chief, Terence Miller, explains what happened.

“On the first floor, the fire was confined to the first floor apartment,” Miller said. “After quick time extinguishment, a victim was found. Inside was a 93 year-old female.”

The woman was identified as Virginia Johnson. Tenants from the other five apartments in the building were displaced, but were allowed to return to their homes later that evening.

The fire remains under investigation while an autopsy is performed.
