A second heat-related death has been confirmed in the Chicago area this year.

An autopsy over the weekend revealed heat was a factor in the death of Hazel Perisee, 62.

She died at her home on the 1800-block of West 79th Street Friday.

One day before, officials say 71-year-old Ann Spears of the 9700-block of South Green Street died because of the heat and medical conditions.
