A woman has died in a fire near St Austell - after the roof collapsed and windows exploded.

It broke out in St Mewan over the weekend.

The news is being broken to the eighty-six year old's family, just a few days before Christmas.

Crews from St Austell and St Dennis were scrambled to the scene first thing on Saturday morning.

It is after a passing driver reported seeing flames and smoke shooting from the two-bed bungalow.

We are still waiting to hear exactly what caused the fatal fire, but investigators do not think it was suspicious.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "At 0624 hours the FRS received calls to a reported bungalw on fire.

"Two fire appliances from St Austell fire station and one fire appliance from St Dennis fire station are dealing with the incident.

"Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus are using two hose reels and one jet."

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "On arrival the detached bungalow was found to be well alight.

"An 86-year-old woman was removed from the property. She was the only occupant.

"Ambulance crews performed CPR but the woman was pronounced deceased at the scene.

"Scenes of crime officers, CID and fire investigators attended the scene.

"The fire is not being treated as suspicious."
