6:44 pm on 23 August 2010

An elderly woman has died in a house fire in Tokoroa.

The Fire Service says two appliances were sent to the house in Tieke Place at 4.30am on Monday.

Two other occupants escaped.

Police say the woman's name will be released when next-of-kin have been advised, but this may take some time as some family members live overseas.
