NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — An elderly woman was left in critical condition early Sunday, after being pulled from a fire in her apartment on the Upper West Side.

The fire broke out shortly before 4 a.m. in the 12-story Narragansett Hotel single-room occupancy building, at 2508 Broadway at 93rd Street.

The woman, whose exact age was not immediately confirmed, was pulled from the fire in her fourth-floor unit taken to an area hospital in critical condition, fire officials said Sunday.

The Narragansett Hotel was the site of an unrelated deadly stabbing this past summer. On July 27, a 56-year-old man was stabbed to death by another resident, Frank Herrera, who was charged with second-degree murder, according to DNAInfo.

The publication described the building as a modest apartment development where residents often use hot plates and have to share bathrooms.
