An early morning incident has left one woman dead at the Burning Man festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert.  

Law enforcement officials confirm that 29-year-old Alicia Cipicchio of Jackson, Wyoming, died early Thursday morning after reportedly falling under a bus carrying participants. 

Burning Man organizers say they are working with law enforcement investigators from the Pershing County Sheriff's Office with regard to the case. 

“This is a terrible accident,” said Burning Man co-founder Marian Goodell. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and campmates. Black Rock Rangers and Emergency Services Department staff are providing support to those affected.”

Investigators ask that anyone with information on the death report it to (775) 273-2641.
