Fire kills at least 1 at senior center


- A fire at a senior living center in Phoenix killed at least one person Sunday, authorities said.

"Firefighters found within a minute of arriving an elderly woman dead on the scene inside an apartment who appeared to have been overcome by smoke and fire," said Capt. Scott Walker with the Phoenix Fire Department.

Walker said a number of people had to be rescued from balconies at the three-story facility.

One or two people were expected to be transported to a local hospital for treatment, Walker said. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
