Indiana University students are still mourning the loss of a 19-year-old student that died over the weekend in an apartment fire. According to Channel 10 News, the girl died of smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

The fire broke out just after 3:30 in the morning on Saturday in building D of Terra Trace Apartments. Firefighters discovered the student’s body laying by a porch door. Attempts to resuscitate her failed, and she was pronounced dead on the scene. Investigators don’t know what caused the fire, but its origin was in apartment D9–right next door to the victim. In the end, several others were injured and twelve homes were destroyed.
