WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) – A woman has died following a fire in Watertown Thursday morning.
Officials responded to a home on Buckingham Street just after 7:30 a.m. for the report of a fire. The fire was contained to the first floor in the back of the house.
When firefighters went inside the home, the woman’s body was located. No one else was home at the time of the fire.
“Once they knocked down the fire, they found a deceased woman, age 50, in the back bedroom,” said Chief David Bromley, Watertown Fire Department. “She lived with her husband. Her husband was at work at the time, so she was home alone at the time of the fire.”
The fire chief said the damage to the house is extensive.
The fire remains under investigation.
