Woman dies in Airdrie house fire

  • 4-30-2015

A 63-year-old woman has died following a fire at a house in North Lanarkshire.

Fire crews were called to the scene in Mavsibank Street, Airdrie, shortly before 00:25.

The woman was brought out of the building by firefighters and given emergency treatment, but did not survive. No-one else was injured in the incident.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said they were investigating how the fire started.

The spokesman added: "The loss of life through fire is always a tragedy that impacts many people across a community and our thoughts are very much with the woman's family and friends.

"While we cannot comment on the specific circumstances surrounding this incident, any death through fire must prompt us all to consider fire safety and take steps to reduce any risks to ourselves and those around us."
