She was the only one in the home. Bromley said the husband was away at work at the time.
Police officers and a bystander from the Waterbury Fire Department who was driving by had tried to get into the house, but there was too much fire and smoke, according to fire officials.
It’s not clear what started the fire. There will be an investigation.
