Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

An 84-year-old woman died after being pulled from a house fire Friday night at 3 Elm Street in Glenview.

Firefighters responded about 10:30 p.m. after a passerby called 911 to report smoke coming from the home’s roof. When firefighters arrived, they found an individual, later identified as Joanne Strickland, inside. She was transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where she was pronounced deceased at 11:02 p.m.

Firefighters were able to get the blaze under control, but did not immediately know what caused it.
