An elderly woman died over the weekend in a fire in the northwest suburbs.

The fire broke out inside a 12-unit building on the 2300-block of South Cannon Drive in Mount Prospect Saturday morning.

Firefighters say they found Kathleen Marrs, 69, in a first-floor unit where a small fire was burning.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials said they did not think it was suspicious.
