A 63-year-old woman has died in a late-night house fire in north Belfast.

Fire-fighters were called at about 2230 GMT on Saturday to the house at Mountainview Gardens, off the Upper Crumlin Road.

The woman was alone in the house during what the Fire and Rescue Service described as a "substantial blaze".

A police spokesperson said they were investigating the fire, but at the moment, there was nothing to suggest it was suspicious.
