Woman dies after house fire

A 93-YEAR-OLD woman from Hexham, who was rescued from a fire at her home, has died in hospital.

Hilda Webb died on Thursday in Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary after firefighters pulled her from the blaze which broke out in her bungalow at Garth Cottages at 8.45pm on Wednesday.
She was found unconscious in her living room, where the fire is thought to have started, before smoke spread through the rest of the property.
Investigators began working at the bungalow on Thursday morning to establish the cause of the fire, but there are thought to be no suspicious circumstances.
