    A 68-year-old woman died in a fire at an apartment complex in Bloomfield on Thursday morning.

    Police and firefighters responded to the Interfaith Homes complex at 7 Mountain Road just after midnight.

    They found heavy flames coming from apartment 29 in building 7 of the complex, according to fire officials.

    The fire was too much for police officers to get inside, but after dousing the flames from outside the building, firefighters were able to go in and found a woman dead inside, fire officials said.

    Authorities identified the victim as Deborah Lue.

    The fire affected 10 units in the complex and several other residents have been displaced, fire officials said. The Red Cross is helping those residents.
