      Woman dies in Scituate house fire

      A woman died Wednesday following an early-morning fire that destroyed a Scituate home.

      Family members said the victim was Erika Guilmain.

      The fire at a single-family home on Silk Lane started just before 1:30 a.m.

      Fire officials said there were three people in the house and two were able to get out safely.

      Tankers were called in to help from at least six nearby fire departments because there were no hydrants in the area.

      One firefighter was taken to Rhode Island Hospital with back and neck injuries. His condition was not immediately known.

      The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
