Wollaston Fire Tragedy
A WIDOW of 70 was found dead on Christmas Day after fire swept through her home at 13 Hookhams Path, Wollaston.
The dead woman, Mrs Alice Goddard, a music teacher who lived on her own, was found lying across an electric fire in the living room early on Christmas morning. Neighbours who spotted the blaze were driven back by dense smoke.
