Fire In Hilliard Claims Unidentified Victim

Officials say an early-morning apartment fire in suburban Columbus has claimed the life of an unidentified victim. The fire at 3883 Linda Road in Hilliard broke out around 7 a.m. Saturday. City spokeswoman Hyda Slone says the blaze involved six units in the apartment complex. The Franklin County coroner is working to identify a body found inside one of the units after the fire was contained. Slone said she could not release any identifying information nor say whether the person was a resident of the apartment. The cause remains under investigation. The American Red Cross was helping several apartment residents displaced as a result of fire damage, including a woman and her two children.
