Authorities have identified a woman who was stabbed several times and found by firefighters in a building set ablaze on the Southwest Side Friday afternoon.

Lucy Wrobel, 51, was found with multiple stab wounds inside a burning home in the 2500 block of West 45th Street, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Heavy smoke and flames were visible at the rear of the home when firefighters arrived, and the scene was elevated to an extra-alarm fire because of frozen fire hydrants.

Officials say the fire is suspicious due to the volume of the flames. The police bomb and arson unit is investigating the cause.
