TACOMA -- One person was killed after they became trapped in a house fire in Tacoma's Stadium district early Wednesday morning.

When crews arrived at north 6th and Stadium Way, flames were shooting out of the second floor of the building. A witness told firefighters that there might be someone inside. Crews found one person, who was taken to the hospital but did not survive.

Investigators believe the fire was caused by something being placed too close to a heater.
