Woman Dies After Kidderminster Flat Fire
A woman has died after being injured in a flat fire in Worcestershire.
Sandra Nowocinska, 22, died at 2pm on Monday 1 December with her family by her side after she was injured in an apartment fire in Kidderminster on Thursday 27 November.
Sandra’s five-year-old son, who was also injured in the fire in an apartment above a shop in Horsefair, remains in a serious but stable condition in Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Detective Inspector Leighton Harding said: “Our condolences go out to Sandra’s family; our specialist family liaison officers are supporting them at this difficult time.
"A dedicated team of detectives and staff continue to investigate the circumstances around the fire, which is being treated as suspicious. We are treating Sandra’s death as manslaughter and we would appeal for anyone with any information that may help the investigation to contact us.”
A 41-year-old man arrested in connection with the fire has been released on bail.
