The Baltimore City Fire Department says a 69-year-old woman died in a house fire early Sunday morning.

Crews were called to a single-family, two-story home in the 4400 block of Clydesdale Ave around 2 a.m. this morning. Firefighters found the woman unresponsive on the second floor. Paramedics worked with her for an hour and were able to wake her but she passed away a few hours later around 6 a.m.

She had suffered several burns on her face and upper body, according to firefighters. An autopsy will be completely to determine the cause of death.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated; crews are unsure if there was a working fire alarm in the home.
