A 58-year-old woman has died following a fire at her home in East Ayrshire.
Emergency services were called shortly after 08:30 after the blaze broke out in an upstairs bedroom of the house in Belvedere View, Galston.
Fire crews entered the property and extinguished the blaze but the woman, who has not been named, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal. It is not thought that the fire was suspicious.
