The fiery death of well-loved neighbour Inez Mabel Fields, 81, has left the Newbury, St George, community in mourning.

The elderly woman died after her wooden home went up in flames early yesterday morning.

Police said officers from the Boarded Hall station got the call around 2:20 a.m. and when they arrived ten minutes later, the two-bedroom, one-bathroom house was engulfed in flames.

Fields’ body was discovered in the doorway of a bedroom  after firefighters put out the blaze. The police said that Fields, who lived alone, was in the habit of using a kerosene oil lamp although the house had electricity. (CA)
