Woman killed in apartment fire

An early morning apartment fire has killed a woman in Covington.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported firefighters were able early Tuesday to rescue a man from the home, which had been subdivided into apartments. But the woman retreated back into the house and
was overcome by heat and smoke.

Covington Fire Chief Mark Young told reporters at the scene that
firefighters had almost reached the woman, but flames forced them
back.

The victim's name wasn't immediately released.
