LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a woman and her 5-year-old son have died following fire in mid-Michigan.

The fire burned early Thursday at LaRoy Froh Townhouses in Lansing. Fire department Capt. Steve Mazurek tells the Lansing State Journal that the 30-year-old woman and her son were taken to a hospital, where they were pronounced dead. Names weren’t immediately released.

Mazurek says crews arrived at the two-story building to find heavy smoke and fire. TV stations WLNS and WILX report that heat and fire made a rescue impossible. The bodies were found on the second floor.

Mazurek says a neighbor called authorities about the fire after he tried unsuccessfully to get inside. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
