VANCOUVER – A woman died in an apartment fire in Vancouver Sunday morning.

Fire crews were called out to the fire at Courtyard Village Apartments at 2600 T Street.

The fire was contained to one unit, but a 27-year-old woman living in the unit passed away, officials said.

A neighbor told KGW the victim was "a great person." The neighbor also said the woman's two pets, a dog and cat, were able to get out of the fire.
