An apartment fire killed a woman in Selden early on Christmas morning according to Suffolk County Police.
On Sunday, Dec. 25, the Selden Fire Department responded to a call reporting a fire at the St. Joseph’s Village Apartment Complex, located at 2000 Boyle Road.
Once the fire was put out, Marie Mahoney, a resident of Apartment 16C, was located in her bedroom. Mahoney, 69, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Suffolk County Medical Examiner.
Both Homicide and Arson units are continuing to investigate the fire, but early indications lead the SCPD to believe that the incident is not criminal-related.
