SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

One woman has died after an early morning fire that occurred last week.

Savannah Fire investigators said Joann Wells died from injuries she received when she fled the apartment during the fire on Thursday.

Wells was among seven adults who escaped the apartment on 38th Street. She was later transported to Memorial University Medical Center, then eventually transferred to the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta.

The burn center told Savannah Fire investigators she died early Monday morning. The cause of the fire is still unknown, but it appears it started in the back of the building inside a room connected to a porch.
