KALAMAZOO (AP) — Authorities in southwestern Michigan say one person has been killed after a fire broke out in a senior apartment complex.

Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety officials say the woman was rescued early Saturday from a seventh-floor balcony of the nine-story Crosstown Parkway Senior Community Apartments building. She was taken to a hospital, where she died.

Fire officials say the blaze was contained to the seventh-floor unit, where they saw heavy smoke and fire.

Police say displaced residents have been taken to the YMCA of Greater Kalamazoo.
