So distressing to hear the news this lady lost her life in such circumstances. I really must say we (Tenbury) are so fortunate to have a Fire Brigade who responded to this tragedy and sadly recovered this lady from her home. I know if she could have been saved the efforts, response and professionalism from our Fire Service manned by locals 24 x 7 would have prevailed.
