LUDLOW, Mass (WWLP) – A woman who was taken to the hospital after an apartment fire in Ludlow overnight has died.
Ludlow Fire Chief Ryan M. Pease told 22News, around 10:30 p.m., the Ludlow Fire Department received a report from a resident stating their apartment was on fire and that she was unable to get out. When crews arrived in the area, they saw a heavy fire in the rear of the multi-family wood-frame home.
Pease said crews were able to control the fire enough to make an entry into the building and found the woman was taken to Baystate Medical Center where she later died. The fire was contained in one apartment. Ludlow police evacuated residents from four other apartments.
Pease confirmed the cause of the fire was accidental and not considered suspicious at this time.
