A resident of an Addison apartment died early Monday morning in a fire.

Addison firefighters were called to an apartment building on the 600 block of Lincoln Avenue about 12:45 a.m.

Firefighters encountered light smoke in the hallway of the 20-unit building. The fire was contained to a single apartment, and the occupant of that unit did not escape, said Batallion Chief Scott Heinrich. The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of relatives.

Officials do not suspect foul play.
