House fire victim dies in hospital

5:22 pm on 24 August 2015

A woman rescued from a house fire in Christchurch last week has died in Middlemore Hospital.

The woman, in her 30s, was burnt when the Linwood home caught fire last Tuesday.

She was transferred to Middlemore Hospital the next day, but died from her injuries this morning.

Detective Sergeant Dave Parker said police investigations were continuing but her death was not being treated as suspicious.

A post mortem was carried out today and the death has been referred to the coroner.
