BRUNSWICK, Ohio - A woman has died in a fire at a condo complex in Brunswick early Wednesday morning.
According to fire officials at the scene, the fire broke out at about 4:45 a.m. in the 4600 block of Doral Dr., just south of Route 303.
Family members said the 78-year-old woman, Delia Kuzda, lived alone.
Officers were first to arrive and tried to use a sledge hammer to break down the door.
Firefighters arrived, but the home was engulfed in flames and rescue crews could not make entry.
The cause of the fire remains unknown. Officials said the fire "destroyed" the Doral Drive condo, with damage estimated at $250,000. There was smoke and water damage to a nearby condo. Residents were evacuated from all townhomes in the building, with the exception of two families who have been able to return home. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
