Via The Argus:
Firefighter James Holgate told the court he used breathing apparatus to enter the one-bedroom flat.
He said the smoke was thick and he and a colleague felt there way into the flat and made their way to the burning bedroom.
He said: “I could see flames but very little else because of the thick black smoke.”
He said the bed was on fire and there was also an area alight behind the door.
When he and his colleague searched the room they discovered the body lying on the floor. He said there was no sign of life.
The court was told Miss Waddell was lying on her back and she had suffered severe burns.
