    A New Hampshire woman died Friday night in a house fire in Nottingham, according to the state fire marshal.

    The fire started just before 9:30 p.m. at a home on Stage Road.

    When firefighters arrived, the single-family residence was heavily consumed in flames.

    Fire officials said crews were able to rescue a man, but the heavy flames kept them from rescuing a woman.

    The man was transported to Exeter Hospital for treatment.

    The Union Leader identified the victim as 82-year-old Patricia Baker. Her exact cause of death is pending an autopsy.

    Fire officials said a preliminary investigation indicated that the fire originated in a first floor bedroom and spread rapidly throughout the home. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
