CAMP VICENTE LIM, Laguna, Philippines – A 79-year-old woman died in a fire that razed her shanty in Nasugbu, Batangas yesterday morning.

Leonida Marquez was trapped in the burning house in Barangay Aga, according to Inspector Hazel Luma-ang, spokesperson for the Batangas police.

Luma-ang said the blaze could have been sparked by a kerosene lamp that the victim was using.

Marquez’s daughter Lucita tried to rescue her mother but the flames spread quickly.
