A woman died on Tuesday afternoon in a fire at a house in calle Pasadilla in Loja, Granada province.
The fire began at around 17:00 on Tuesday afternoon on the first floor of the three-storey building, forcing the evacuation of a number of residents.
The deceased was apparently inside the house when the fire started, presumably unable to escape. Residents were allowed back into their homes after the fire was extinguished.
This is the third fire fatality in Andalucia since Christmas Eve, the other to occurring in Villalba del Alcor (Huelva) and Córdoba.
