Staff Writer

Early Sunday morning at around 2:30 am, firefighters were informed of a fire at a two story apartment on East Peralta Way, near Fresno Street. At first, no fire was seen at the scene, until the captain took a look around and noticed a fire in the two story building unit in the back. A woman was found later in the unit, not breathing, and was not indicating any pulse. Crews tried to give the woman CPR, but she died on the scene. Now according to recent reports from the Fresno County Coroner’s office, the woman in the unit was identified as 48 year old named Joy Silva. In more detail of the scene, firefighters inspected the apartment and discovered that smoke was exiting the bathroom and once making their way the victim was found unconscious on the bathroom floor.  For now, investigators have no other information as to why the victim may have started the fire or how it happened.
