WATERLOO (AP) – Authorities have confirmed that one person died following a house fire in Waterloo.

The Waterloo Police Department said the identity of the elderly woman who was found dead at the residence has not yet been released.

Fire Chief Pat Treloar said a passerby reported the fire and rescue crews arrived on the scene within a minute. Heat from the fire cracked a window on the front of the home and smoke then billowed from the house.

Officials said the flames were contained to the living room, where the woman was found.
