1 dead, 1 injured after Amityville house fire
A woman was killed and her husband injured when fire tore through their home in Amityville.
The fire began in the home on Locust Drive Saturday morning.
Firefighters say they had to rescue Gopal Sarkar from the roof. He wasn't seriously hurt.
However, his 43-year-old wife was pronounced dead at the scene.
"The staircase was compromised. We couldn't get upstairs. There was a heavy volume of fire. We tried to go through the back to get upstairs, we couldn't get up," Amityville Fire Chief Jeffrey Erath.
No word on what sparked the fire.
Detectives do not believe it was criminal.
