KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities in western Michigan say a woman has been found dead inside a burning apartment across the street from a Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety office.

MLive.com reports that Kalamazoo public safety Lt. Stacey Geik says the fire was reported about 2:10 p.m. Sunday and firefighters quickly extinguished it. She says the woman was found in the room where the fire started.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released, and it wasn't immediately clear if the fire killed her or she was dead already.

The house is divided into multiple apartments, and Geik says the fire was contained to the one upstairs unit.
