At least one person has been killed in an apartment fire on Chicago's West Side.

Firefighters were called to the 2nd floor of an apartment building in the 500-block of South Lavergne. They began to put out the fire, and found a 62-year-old man dead on the floor of his apartment. Authorities say the man was bedridden, but had been checked on earlier that afternoon.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
