Fareham bungalow fire: Man dies while woman is saved

An elderly man died in a fire at a bungalow in Hampshire.

An elderly woman managed to escape the property in Nicholas Crescent, Fareham, and was taken to hospital as a precaution. The man died at the scene.

The alarm was raised by a working smoke detector but crews were faced with an "intense" fire once they entered the home at about 08:00 GMT.

An investigation into the cause is under way but it is not being treated as suspicious.
