Barbara Eastway was found inside the apartment following the fire, which was reported about 6 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities said she died of smoke inhalation.

David Eastway said his mother was a caring grandmother and a former nurse. She’d lived there for about 14 years.

Investigators said the fire started in a mattress in the apartment and was contained to that unit.
