House fire kills woman in Gloucester

7th such death in state this year

A two-alarm fire tore through a single-family house in Gloucester Saturday night, claiming the life of the resident, according to the Gloucester Fire Department. It was the seventh fire fatality in the state this year.

Officials have not released the identity of the victim, but a neighbor said a woman lived alone in the house with her two dogs. “She’s a very nice lady,” said Lori Osborn, who lives next door and said she called 911. “She’s a good neighbor.”
