MILWAUKEE — One person was injured after an apartment fire on Milwaukee's East Side on Monday near Bartlett and Kane.

The aunt of the victim in the apartment fire says the victim, Cinque Brady, has died. She says it was from smoke inhalation.

The fire happened around 7:30 a.m. in a single unit. The victim was located inside and transported to the hospital. Milwaukee fire officials say the extent of the victim's injuries is unknown at this time.

Residents displaced by the fire can find essentials at the American Red Cross' reception center. It is located at Redeemer Lutheran Church on the corner of 19th and Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

In an update Monday evening, the Red Cross reported nearly all residents have been able to return to the apartment building. They say teams are providing emergency relief for lodging and food to two people from two units of the building. Two other units declined help.

"Our teams will continue to be available to help all those affected with next steps in their recovery," Justin Kern, communications director with Red Cross, said in a statement Monday evening.
