Pensioner dies in Loughor house fire
Neighbours have paid tribute to a pensioner who died in a Loughor house fire.
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service were called to the incident at Bwrw Road on Monday night, around 9.25pm.
Police say a forensic examination is on-going to establish how the fire started, in which a 70-year-old woman died.
She has been named by neighbours as Zoe Humphries.
Neighbour Eifion Bevan said: “She was a very nice person.
“She had some carers who came to see her a few times a day.
“She used to live in Burry Port, but she has family who live here and moved back. Her husband, who died some years ago, used to work in the mines alongside my brothers.”
Another neighbour, Rob Gilis, added: “She was a dear old lady, and was very friendly.”
The property in which she lived was at the end of quiet road.
Another neighbour said: “We did not know about a fire last night. We weren’t aware anything had happened”.
A spokesman for South Wales Police said: “The death is being treated as unexplained at this time.
“The next of kin have been informed and Police will now be carrying out an investigation into the death on behalf of HM Coroner.”
A family spokesman added: “We would like to pay thanks to the carers from nursing services Aylecare. They have been brilliant”.
