The Ada County coroner has identified the person who died in a deadly apartment fire over the weekend.

The coroner says 45 year old Wendy Comfort died in the Arbor Crossing Apartment complex fire. Boise fire says it's an ongoing investigation. There is no word on what sparked it.  

The American Red Cross is supporting those displaced by the fire. At least 19 families have received support from the Red Cross in Boise.

Fire victims get voucher cards they can use for necessities and information on other organizations who will support them.

"And you know it's not a lot money they give, we can't give them money to replace everything but it's going to be more than they had and it's going to help them move forward," said Linda Raine, Red Cross volunteer.
