ST. CLOUD -- The name of the person who died in an apartment fire in St. Cloud last week has been released.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office says 57-year-old Teresa Kelly-Schroepfer died from her injuries.

St. Cloud Fire Marshal Michael Post says this was the first fire-related death in St. Cloud since 2015. He says 16 people have died in fire-related deaths in St. Cloud since 1970.

The incident happened shortly before 7:15 p.m. Thursday at 1521 Sherburne Drive, in an upper floor apartment.

Kelly-Schroepfer was taken to St. Cloud Hospital where she later died.

The blaze caused about $60,000 worth of damages in only one unit of the apartment complex. The cause of the fire was an unattended cigarette.
