DETAILS: Neighbour describes horror of fatal house fire

"I was fast asleep but my flatmate (woke me) after hearing a neighbour," the witness said.

"The guy was trying to get into the house, smash the windows and help but I think by then it was too late - the flames were already up and there was smoke coming out."

He said he believed the woman was in her 40s and a mother of a 12-year-old who was not home at the time.
