Woman dies after Chiswick house fire rescue

A woman has died after being rescued from a fire at a terraced house in west London.

Emergency services were called at about 2345 GMT on Friday after the fire broke out in the house in Esmond Road, Chiswick.

Firefighters found an unnamed woman unconscious on the first floor of the house. She was taken to Charing Cross Hospital, but died later.

An investigation into the cause of the fire began on Saturday morning.

The Metropolitan Police said it was too soon to say whether the fire was suspicious.

A spokesman said no other people were injured.
