An investigation into a fire at a farmhouse that led to the death of a 69-year-old woman is expected to begin today.
Several fire crews from across the county were called to the property near Broughton in Furness just before 9am, on Wednesday morning, after a blaze broke out.
An elderly woman was killed and a man in his 70s, found outside of the property, was taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
Engineers are expected to assess the fire-damaged structure this morning to make sure it is safe for coroners to enter.
Part of the A595 was closed to traffic for a number of hours on Wednesday to allow emergency vehicles to access the remote location of the farm.
