Fire in Flushing apt. kills woman, 66: FDNY

FLUSHING — An apartment fire earlier this month killed a senior citizen in her Flushing home, but did not cause extensive damage to any neighboring apartments, according to the FDNY.

The FDNY received a call at 2:25 a.m. Dec. 9 regarding a fire in a sixth-floor apartment at 35-10 150th St. Firefighters had the all-hands blaze under control by 3:19 a.m., but not in time to save Carol Zatz, 66, according to an FDNY spokeswoman.

Zatz was taken from her top-floor home to Flushing Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Fire officials have not released any information about what may have caused the fire, which is still under investigation, according to the FDNY spokeswoman.
