A woman has been sent to a hospital in Detroit and is in critical condition after a fire that caused an estimated $95,000 in damage at a duplex on Church Street Tuesday morning.

Police said the woman was suffering from smoke inhalation. 

The fire was caused by unattended cooking in the building's upstairs unit around 5:30 a.m., according to Windsor Fire and Rescue Services chief fire prevention officer John Lee.

Investigators estimate it caused $80,000 in damage to the building and another $15,000 to items inside.

Crews also battled flames at a home on Cadillac Street near Reginald Street. Smoke and flames were visible when firefighters arrived, but the blaze is now out.

Damage from the bedroom fire is estimated at $150,000, but investigators could not determine what caused it.
