The Anchorage Fire Department says in a release that the victim had been trapped in one of the units in the two-story structure.

Four other people were taken to local hospitals. One was listed in serious condition, and the other three were in stable condition.

A fire investigator will determine the cause of the fire, and the Red Cross is assisting those who have been displaced.
