An early-morning fire sent flames shooting out windows of a high-rise apartment building in Chicago, killing one woman and injuring eight firefighters.

The cause of the 12:30 a.m. fire on the 14th floor of the 47-story building was not immediately determined, Fire Department spokesman Patrick Howe said.

The victim was a woman in her 50s, the Cook County medical examiner's office said. Investigators were still working to identify her.

Three firefighters were treated at a hospital for burns and were in fair condition, a Fire Department spokesman said. Five others were treated and released.
