elderly woman and critically injured another.

Firefighters were called to the two-family home at 3205 Ampere Avenue at 7:40 a.m., on Tuesday, April 30. Within minutes of their arrival,
firefighters removed an 84-year-old woman and a 45-year-old male from the burning home.

Both were transported to Jacobi Hospital where the woman was pronounced dead and the man was reported to be in serious condition. The name of the victim was pending proper family notification.
