An investigation is underway into the cause of a fatal house fire in the Halifax area early Friday morning.

Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency crews were called to the blaze on Moody Park Drive in Williamswood just before 1:30 a.m.

A news release issued by the municipality says firefighters discovered “heavy fire conditions in a two-storey house.” They were told a woman was still inside.

“Despite dangerous fire conditions and structural damage to the house, fire crews raised ladders to the second storey in order to gain entry and search the house,” the news release says.

They found the woman and pulled her from the burning building, but she was unresponsive.

“Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones impacted by this tragic fire as well as the wider Williamswood community,” the release says. “Our firefighters work hard every day to reduce the impact of fires on residents in our community. Any loss of life to fire is heartbreaking.

No details have been released on the woman’s identity.

Moody Park Drive was closed to traffic for most of the day, reopening at 2:30 p.m.
