Emergency services attended the scene of a fire Road in Martinborough during the early hours of this morning.
Reports were received just after 1am that a fire had occurred at an address on White Rock road.
One occupant inside the house managed to escape to a neighbouring property. A second person sadly was later found deceased after not making it out.
Once the body is removed from the property, a post mortem and official identification process will occur.
The person that escaped was being treated for smoke inhalation.
The fire is not suspected as being suspicious, but a scene examination will determine any further causes and speculation as to how it started.
