A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder in Redruth.
The forty year old has been questioned and released on bail.
It is after a 96 year old woman died following a fire at a care home Truro back in 2008.
Gladys Rowe was pulled from her bed by firefighters, in the room she shared with another resident of Rosewyn House.
She died in hospital days later, after breathing in smoke.
