Victim's ID unavailable following fatal fire

SALEM, IN (WAVE) - One person was killed in a late-afternoon fire at an apartment building on Salem's east side Tuesday.

The victim has not been identified, nor is it known how the fire started, according to WSLM Radio. Officials said the fire likely started in the living room or family room of one of the units in a four-plex at the Parkview Apartments on Parkview Drive.

It took firefighters a little more than an hour to put out the blaze, WSLM reported.

"I have to credit the firefighters for doing a good job of keeping the fire contained to one apartment," Salem Fire Chief Tom Day said.

No other information was immediately available.
