Woman, 42, dies after house fire in Windmill Heights, Enniskillen

Experts enter house where woman died An investigation is under way to establish the cause of the fire

The 42-year woman who died after a house fire in Enniskillen has been named locally as Catherine Williamson.

Firefighters were called to her house at Windmill Heights just before 22:00 BST on Friday after a fire alarm went off and smoke was seen at a window.

Two neighbours rushed to the house with a ladder. However they were unable to help as the smoke was too thick.

Firefighters brought the woman out of a bedroom and rushed to hospital, but she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Mrs Williamson was a mother and grandmother.

The fire service has confirmed two fire alarms in the house were working. They are currently trying to establish how the fire started.
