Woman who was severely burned in Eatontown apartment fire dies
EATONTOWN (AP) -- A Monmouth County woman who was severely burned after her apartment caught fire has died from her injuries.
NJ.com reports the fire was ruled accidental and originated with an electrical baseboard heater in the bedroom of the Eatontown apartment.
Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said the blaze broke out on April 10 after midnight.
Firefighters pulled the 69-year-old woman out of the apartment where the fire started. She sustained second- and third-degree burns covering most of her body.
Prosecutors say seven people, including two firefighters, were treated for smoke inhalation and released from Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch.
The building has been deemed uninhabitable.
