Fire crews are investigating two fires in southwest Baltimore, one of which turned fatal.

The first fire broke out at about 8 p.m. Tuesday at a home in the 2500 block of Dulaney Street, firefighters said.

Crews found a mattress on fire on the second floor of the home.

Firefighters searched the home and found a woman unconscious in another room. She was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Crews said a firefighter suffered an injury to his hand while battling the blaze.

There is no word on what caused the fire.
