An investigation is taking place into a fire on Ingram’s Road in Stephenville Crossing that claimed the life of a 53-year-old woman.

Cpl. Judy Morgan of the Bay St. George RCMP said on Saturday afternoon that police were notified of a fire at a residence at 2 a.m. and on arrival the building, a trailer, was fully engulfed in flames.

Police investigators were still on the scene on Saturday afternoon and up to that time did not have a cause for the fire.
