A woman who was rescued from a garage fire in Wembley has since died, the Times has learned.

The victim was left unconscious after the blaze tore through the garage at the rear of a property in Bowrons Avenue shortly before 1am yesterday morning.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus rescued the woman from the burning building.

She was treated by London Ambulance Service crews before being taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

But the victim later died, the Times has learned.

The woman has been named locally but the Times will not reveal her identity until her family has been informed by the authorities.

It is thought the woman was asleep as the fire broke out. It is believed it started accidentally.

The flames were brought under control by 2.20am.
