Fire officials are investigating two fatal Bronx fires that broke out this morning less than a mile apart.

Firefighters were called to the six-story building on Valentine Avenue in Fordham just after 2:30 a.m. When they arrived, they found the body of an 82-year-old woman inside a third-floor apartment.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

At around 5:30 a.m., firefighters responded to another fire near the intersection of North Street and Jerome Avenue.

Sources say an 86-year-old woman was killed.

According to the New York City Police Department, neither fire appears to be suspicious.
