Firefighters were called to a report of a fire on Ashley Close, Warrington.

When they arrived they were confronted with a fire in a ground floor flat. They had reports that there was someone inside and so crews wearing breathing apparatus quickly entered the flat. They located a woman in a bedroom but sadly she was confirmed to have died at the scene.

The fire was extinguished with a hose reel jet and a ventilation fan. Crews remained at the scene for more than four hours.

A joint investigation with Cheshire Police is now underway to determine the cause of the blaze. However, it is believed that there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.
