Springfield Fire Chief Ken Fustin has confirmed one person has died in a high rise fire on the city’s east side.

Crews were called to the Capitol Arms Apartments at 12th street between Washington and Adams around 5:30 Monday afternoon to battle a blaze on the building’s 10th floor. Fustin says the fire was contained to one apartment, which sustained heavy smoke and water damage.

Delores Spencer, 77, was pronounced dead.
