A PADIHAM woman is still fighting for her life almost two weeks after a blaze engulfed her home.

Margaret Jackson (50) was dragged unconscious from her Windermere Avenue home by firefighters after she was overcome by smoke on Sunday, July 17th.

She was rushed to the Royal Blackburn Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

The fire is thought to have been caused by an electrical fault in her television set.
