A 93-year-old woman lost her life in a fire which destroyed her house in Mayfield district, in Manchester on the weekend.
She has been identified as Elisha Spencer, also of Mayfield district.
Reports are that about 2:00 p.m., residents saw smoke coming from a section of Spencer’s house, and summoned the fire department.
Upon the arrival of the firemen, the house was already consumed by the fire, so they could only carry out cooling down operations.
After the fire died down, Spencer’s charred remains were found under the burnt rubble.
