Heat kills 80-year-old St. Louis County resident

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -- The heat wave is being blamed in the death of an 80-year-old St. Louis County woman.

The county health department says the woman was found Aug. 2 in her Brentwood home. A window air conditioner was not working and all the windows and doors were closed. Authorities say the temperature inside the home was 96 degrees.

It is at least the fifth heat-related death in St. Louis County this year.
