A woman has died following a fire in Plaistow on Saturday November 14.

Three fire engines and around twenty firefighters were called to the scene of a blaze at a two-floored terraced house on Humberstone Road, where they found one woman inside.

Station officer Karl Smith, who was at the scene, said: “On arrival, fire crews were faced with a well-developed fire on the ground floor of the house.

“Crews quickly extinguished the blaze but sadly one woman was declared dead at the scene.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
