A fire that broke out late Monday night at an apartment building on Spruce Street in Rumford displaced 2 families and killed 1 person.

Officials say the only person that was unaccounted for after the fire was 73-year-old Jane Bubar. Authorities are still working to positively identify the body but indicate it is unlikely to be anybody else.

According to WMTW, the victim was located early the next morning inside the first-floor apartment where they say the fire originally began. The people living in the two other units on the second and third floor were all able to escape without injury. Fire officials say the cause of the fire remains unknown due to the extensive damage to the structure.
