JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A woman died Sunday afternoon after a fire burned through her room above a local bar. 

Kathy Lorraine Johnson, 43, was staying in one of three boarding rooms above Greybeard's Tavern in the 3300 block of Commonwealth Avenue, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said. 

Patrons inside the bar called 911 around 1:30 p.m. when they noticed smoke coming from upstairs. 

When fire crews responded, they found Johnson dead inside the room.

Police believe she also worked at the tavern.

No foul play is suspected at this time, police said.

No one else was hurt during the fire.
