DETROIT (WWJ) - A woman was found dead inside a burning home on Detroit's west side Tuesday evening.

Fire crews arrived to the house along Hartwell Street, in the area of Lyndon and Schaefer Highway, just before 8:30 p.m. and found the victim inside on the second floor.

The woman's identity has not been released -- and rescue crews were still working to see if there's anyone else inside the house.

Firefighters worked for hours to extinguish the fire but didn't believe it was a threat to spread to nearby homes.
