A woman has sadly passed away after a house fire in Sheffield.
Firefighters were called to the property, on New Cross Drive, at 12.30pm yesterday.
Upon arrival they found the fire was out but the occupant, a lady in her 70s, had suffered significant burn injuries.
It is believed that this fire started when smoking materials, likely a cigarette, set the casualty’s clothes on fire.
Our thoughts are with the woman’s family and friends at this very sad time.
