Woman Dies From Burns Sustained in New Britain Fire

A woman who suffered from burns sustained from a structural fire in New Britain last month died a few weeks following the incident, the fire department said. 

The 63-year-old woman was rescued from the home after New Britain Fire Department responded to a two-alarm house fire on 163 Miller Street at 1:28 p.m. on June 11, the department said. 

Firefighters said they found the woman in a burning room of the apartment.

She was first transported to a local hospital before being moved to the Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries on June 30, the fire department said. 

The cause of the fire has been ruled undetermined, fire officials said. While smoke alarms were present in the home, they did not sound an alarm, New Britain Fire Department said.
