A Bradford woman died in a house fire late Tuesday night on Lafferty Hollow in Foster Township.

State police say 83-year-old Gertrude Luke was alone in the house when the fire started shortly before midnight. Seven fire companies answered the call and a report said Luke was trapped in the blaze.

A state police fire marshal has determined that the blaze started in the master bedroom after an electrical malfunction in a closet.
