“The cause of the fire is accidental, believed to be started by (a) smoldering cigarette in a chair,” the press release states.

The sheriff’s office said Thursday that a then-unidentified woman was pulled from Parkview Apartments, 516 Main Ave. N., Tuesday night as the second floor was engulfed in flames.

Halvorson was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center, where she died as a result of her injuries.
