A 58-year-old woman was found dead in an Edgewater Beach high-rise Tuesday morning after a fire broke out on her kitchen stove, according to police.
Crews were called to a blaze about 9:20 a.m. at a 15-story building in the 5200 block of North Kenmore Avenue, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt.
A woman was found on her living room floor and was pronounced dead with her service dog, Chicago police said in a media notification.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified her as Linda Collins.
A fire on the seventh floor was extinguished by 10 a.m., Merritt said.
Police said other apartments on the same floor had water damage.
