From staff reports

Officials have not released the name of the woman killed Saturday evening in a fire at Palm Square Apartments.

In a press release issued about noon Sunday, Fire Chief Mike Baker said officials are awaiting “official identification” and notification of her next of kin. Other residents of the apartment complex at 1360 Thorpe Lane said the unit where the fire apparent started was occupied by a woman who worked at Texas State University’s registrar’s office.

Responders to the scene included firefighters, fire marshals, police, electric utility and gas company personnel, as well as the American Red Cross.
