A 76-year-old woman died early this morning following a fire on the South Side.
Janice Harley, of the 8200 block of South Oglesby Avenue, was pronounced dead at 12:27 a.m. at South Shore Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Firefighters burst into the home in the city's South Chicago neighborhood and found the woman suffering from smoke inhalation, said Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford.
She was initially taken in “extremely critical” condition to the hospital, according to Langford.
No other injuries were reported and the fire was extinguished, said Langford.
