One woman is found dead in her Newark apartment after an evening fire yesterday.

It happened just before 6 p.m. at 185 Buckingham Street.

Newark Assistant Fire Chief, David Decker, says the fire wasn't very large and was contained within 20 minutes.

State Fire Marshall's Office spokeman, Shane Cartmill, says the fire is believed to be accidental.

The woman was taken to the coroner's for an autopsy. Decker says foul play is not expected at this time.
