Investigation into fatal Newbold fire concludes
Main article content
Officers have concluded their investigation into a fire in Newbold in which a woman died.
We were called to a block of flats in Seaton Court, Devonshire Close, Newbold, just before 9pm on Saturday 12 September.
A 34-year-old woman sadly died at the scene. We believe the fire was started by a naked flame.
We are not carrying out any criminal investigation and our officers are preparing a file for the coroner, to assist with a future inquest.
We would like to thank the family, and the wider community, for their support.
