Upon arrival at the scene, the fire team found that the corrugated iron house was fully engulfed in flames.

The fire crew quickly used deliveries of water to quickly extinguish the fire and stop it from spreading to nearby houses.

The NFA says it understands the deceased was bed-ridden and alone at home when the fire started, whilst her husband and son were away.
