Woman dies after being found on fire

A 23-year old woman has died after she was found on fire behind a house in the UK.

West Yorkshire Police and fire crews were called to a property on Cloudsdale Avenue, Bradford, at 7.15pm yesterday.

It is understood the woman was found with serious burns at the property and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The death is being treated as suspicious.

Police officers were still present in the quiet cul-de-sac this morning.

A cordon sealed off around eight houses from the main street, including the terraced property where the incident is believed to have taken place.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: ``Officers were called by the Fire Service at 7.15pm yesterday to reports of a woman with serious burns.

“The woman was pronounced dead and inquiries are ongoing at the scene.

“The post-mortem is due to take place later.”
