The Wenatchee World reported that Fire Chief Stan Smoke described the woman as elderly. She was not immediately identified after Thursday's fire pending notification of relatives.
Smoke said the fire was contained to one unit at the Cascadian Apartments.
The cause was under investigation.
The newspaper says The Cascadian offers rental units to low-income people age 62 and older and some disabled adults.
