Woman Dies in Fitchburg House Fire

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

 

A Fitchburg woman died in a house fire on Monday morning, according to the Worcester County District Attorney's office.

Cheryl Cutting, 53, was pronounced dead at 8:33 a.m. at Leominster Hospital after Fitchburg firefighters pulled her from her burning house located at 71 Cottage Street on Monday morning. 

She was the sole occupant of the single-family home.  

Fire officials determined the fire was caused by pellets for a pellet stove stored too close to the water heater in the basement.

There was no evidence of working smoke alarms in the home. 

State Police Detectives assigned to the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Fitchburg police and fire departments are investigating the fire. 

The Department of Fire Services’ Code Compliance Unit and the State Police Crime Scene Services also assisted.
