A 37 year-old woman died in a flat fire in Litherland last night


Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service (MFRS) attended a house fire in Bowland Drive, Litherland on Saturday morning (9th January 2021). Sadly, we can confirm that the incident has resulted in the death of a 37-year-old woman.


Fire crews were alerted at 4.33am and on the scene at 4.39am. Merseyside Police and the North West Ambulance Service also attended the incident.


A spokesperson from Merseyside Fire & Rescue said: “On arrival firefighters discovered a fire in the bedroom of the first floor flat.”


“Three fire engines attended and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using high pressure hose reels.”


Gary Oakford, Area Manager for Prevention at MFRS, said: “On arrival, fire crews found a fire in the bedroom of the first floor flat. Firefighters quickly entered the property and located the woman inside the bedroom. Crews brought the woman outside and began performing CPR, but she was sadly pronounced dead shortly later by paramedics on scene.”


“The cause and circumstances have been investigated by Merseyside Police and our Incident Investigation Team. The initial investigation indicates that the fire started accidentally and was caused by discarded smoker’s materials. This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased at this time.”


“MFRS Prevention staff are planning follow-up activity in the area next week to provide reassurance to the local community.”


The woman’s next of kin have been informed by Merseyside Police.
