A 52 year-old woman has died following a bungalow fire in Gosport.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to an address in Nyria Way at 12:01 this afternoon (March 25).
Six fire engines attended the incident from Fareham, Gosport, Cosham and Portchester.
The woman was removed from the property by firefighters, who administered Immediate Emergency Care and attempted resuscitation using a defibrillator.
She was later pronounced dead at the scene by HEMS air ambulance personnel.
Firefighters used six sets of breathing apparatus, three hose reels and two jets to bring the fire under control, which had spread to a neighbouring property. The stop message was received at 14:28.
A dog also died at the incident.
An investigation will now be undertaken in conjunction with Hampshire Constabulary to establish the cause.
Smoke alarms provide valuable early warning of a fire, allowing families to get out, stay out and call 999.
We ask that residents of Hampshire ensure they have working smoke alarms, test them regularly and prepare an escape plan, considering exit routes and the closing of fire doors. If you suspect a fire don’t hesitate to call.
