Couple killed in Carlton Village house fire named as William and Eileen Volume
Friday 05 April 2013
An elderly couple who died in a house fire have been named.
William Volume, 88, and his 89-year-old wife, Eileen, who lived in Carlton Village, Stockton-on-Tees, had been married for more than 60 years.
Investigations are continuing into the cause of yesterday's blaze and the authorities are entering the detached property under the supervision of structural engineers.
Cleveland Police said they are continuing to treat the fire as unexplained, but at this stage there is nothing to suggest anything untoward took place.
Results from post-mortem examinations concluded that the pensioners died as a result of smoke inhalation.
Acting Detective Chief Inspector Anne-Marie Salwey said: "My thoughts are with William and Eileen's family members and friends at this difficult time.
"This will be a thorough investigation by officers from Stockton and colleagues at Cleveland Fire Brigade and we are working to establish the cause of the fire as quickly as is possible."
