Clearlake Woman Dies in Fire

A Clear­lake woman and her dog died in an apart­ment fire at the Clear­lake Com­mons Apart­ments Sun­day morn­ing. The fire burned part of one bottom-unit in a four-unit build­ing of the apart­ment com­plex. Author­i­ties responded at approx­i­mately 6:30 a.m. after the victim’s upstairs neigh­bor reported that her smoke detec­tor was going off. Fire per­son­nel con­tained the fire within 10 min­utes after arriv­ing on the scene. No dam­age was reported to other units. The cause of the fire and the woman’s death is under investigation.
