The blaze started at around 10:30 Monday night in a suite south of the main downtown area of the city, not far from Royal Inland Hospital.

Neighbours used a garden hose to douse the flames before firefighters arrived.

The unnamed woman was found in the apartment but could not be revived.

A cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials suspect she may have fallen asleep in a chair while smoking.
