BY The Canadian Press, Jul 10, 2020 2:27 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A woman in her 50s has died in an apartment fire on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

The blaze broke out in an eighth-floor suite of the building (at 133 West Pender Street) just after seven last night.

Fellow residents tried to douse the flames with a hose in the building but could not reach the woman inside and she could not be revived by the time firefighters had pulled her out.

The fire was contained to the single suite and a cause is under investigation.
