A Springfield woman has been found dead after a fire in her upper story apartment at a downtown high rise complex.
Firefighters arrived at the Capitol Plaza apartments at 12th and Washington to find flames coming out of a 10th story window.
While the flames were contained to the victim’s apartment, other units sustained smoke and water damage, and at least 8 residents were displaced overnight.
The coroner’s office has not officially released the name of the victim or determined a cause of death.
The cause of the fire is also still under investigation.
