Authorities on Monday identified the woman who died in a Beaver County apartment fire over the weekend.

Arlene Pickett, 58, lived in the apartment building that burned Sunday on First Street in Ambridge, according to Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi's office.

The coroner plans to conduct an autopsy.

Ambridge police said Pickett was found unresponsive in a stairwell between the second and third floors. Five people, including two children, were hurt in the fire, police said.

Residents used ladders and mattresses to rescue several people from the fire.

The fire appears to have started in a second-floor apartment. It displaced 11 families. The state fire marshal's office is investigating.
