Updated: December 10, 2012 9:48AM



The cause of a fatal apartment fire Friday night in Griffith still is pending.

An unidentified woman died in the blaze, suffering burns, but the Lake County Coroner’s Office has not released her cause of death.

Jackie Bajza, who owns and lives in the building in the 600 block of North Elmer Street, said the fire displaced residents of the four apartments but they have been able to find shelter elsewhere.

Bajza said fire investigators haven’t told her the cause of the fire or how much damage the building sustained.
