Firefighters found an unconscious woman in a burning house in the 1600 block of E. Lafayette Avenue Sunday evening, according to fire department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright. The woman was pronounced dead at the house by medics, but it was not clear whether she died as a result of the fire. Her name and age were not released.

Cartwright said firefighters responded to a call about 6:30 pm and found a lot of debris, including personal items, magazines, lumber, plastic bags and other items when they went through the front door. The fire was primarily in the middle room where the woman was found, he said. An investigation of the blaze, brought under control by 7:10 pm, is continuing.
