AURORA – A 54-year-old female is dead after an early morning structure fire at an apartment complex near South Ironton Street and Kentucky Avenue.

According to Captain Mark Turley, Public Information Officer for the Aurora Fire Department, the woman was found by firefighters inside her bedroom, but have not determined what caused her death. The name of the victim has not been released, he said.

Turley said the fire started around 1:30 a.m. Six apartment units inside the building were evacuated, but there was no immediate information on when residents would be back inside their homes.

The Buckingham Gardens is owned by the Aurora Housing Authority, and has more than 120 units. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Red Cross volunteers immediately responded to the scene to set up a temporary shelter until other housing arrangements could be made for the residents.
