A 65-year-old woman was killed in a fire that broke out in a senior apartment complex in Corona, a battalion chief said Sunday.

The fire was reported at 11:47 a.m. Saturday at the River Run Senior Apartments, in the 800 block of River Road, said Corona Fire Department Battalion Chief Robert Peterson.

Firefighters put out flames burning in a second story unit where they found a woman suffering from severe burn injuries.

She was transported to a burn center, where she was later pronounced dead, Peterson said. The woman was not identified publicly Sunday.

The fire was contained to one unit though it activated fire sprinklers that damaged five other apartments. Its cause was under investigation.
