Careless smoking is being blamed for a second fire death in London in less than a month.

A woman pulled from a burning apartment building last Wednesday has died, police said Tuesday.

London firefighters were called to 140 Langarth St. W., where they rescued a 53-year-old woman from a unit in the three-storey walkup.

The cause of the fire is careless smoking, said police, who didn’t release the woman’s name.

Careless smoking was also the cause of a Feb. 24 blaze at a 14-storey building at 595 Proudfoot Lane that killed a 57-year-old man.
