A 70-year-old woman has died more than two months after she was injured in a fire in the South Side Englewood neighborhood.

Ella Jarrett died at Stroger Hospital at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Jarrett was injured in a fire on the 5900 block of South Carpenter—the block where she lived—on Dec. 19, 2015, according to the medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy Thursday found she died of complications of thermal injuries suffered in a fire, with heart disease listed as a contributing factor, according to the medical examiner’s office. Her death was ruled an accident.
