Authorities have identified the woman who died in an apartment fire near Riverton early Thursday. 24-year-old Brittany Sullivan was pronounced dead at the scene of the fire on Old Route 36.
An autopsy is planned for today. A boy who lived in the home was injured and was first taken to the burn unit at Memorial Medical Center before being transferred to the pediatric ICU at Saint John’s.
Authorities say Sullivan’s husband escaped the flames but was unable to rescue his wife. The cause of that fire is still under investigation.
