SHEBOYGAN - One person has died and another was treated for smoke inhalation at an apartment fire in Sheboygan.
The fire broke out around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday at 1721 Ashland Avenue.
Fire officials say Randi Hein, 51, who lived on the lower level of the 16-unit apartment building died in the fire. Sheboygan Fire Chief Jeff Hermann says a room in the victim's apartment exploded in flames.
Hermann says firefighters couldn't get down the second-floor hallway of the apartment building so they used ladders to reach the residents.
Hermann says fire was contained to the unit where Hein's body was found. He says other apartments sustained smoke damage. One resident was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
Some residents have been displaced. The Red Cross is helping six families.
There is no word on a cause or a damage estimate.
