Fire investigators were searching for the cause of a fire that killed a woman yesterday morning in her Bel Air condominium.
Authorities were withholding the woman's name until relatives could be notified. She was described as being in her mid-60s.
Residents of the Hickory Hills Condominiums in the 200 block of Crocker Drive called 911 about 11 a.m. to report smoke wafting through the building, Edward Hopkins, a captain with the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company, said.
Bob Thomas, spokesman for the state fire marshal's office, said the fire apparently started near a sofa in a living room in the dead woman's ground-floor condominium unit.
