A 94-year-old woman was killed after a fire broke out Friday afternoon in the Bronx, the NYPD said.
The FDNY said the two-alarm fire began just after 3 p.m. on the first floor of a private two-story home located at 4227 Ely Avenue in Wakefield.
Officials say 94-year-old Grace Carter was trapped inside.
She was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
A neighbor said Carter lived in the home with her daughter.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
