A woman is dead after a blaze that broke out early Saturday at the Leisure World gated community in Montgomery County.

Firefighters responded to the fire around 1:32 a.m. at an apartment building in the 15200 block of Elkridge Way.

Authorities first said they evacuated dozens of residents without injury but later Saturday firefighters said they found a woman dead inside her apartment:


No foul play is suspected in the woman’s death. The victim will be identified after her family is notified.

Leisure World is an age-restricted community that first opened in 1965.
