RAMSEY - One person has died in a house fire in Ramsey.

Firefighters were called to 6 Talina Court at 5:47 a.m. for a report of a fire, according to Ramsey Police Chief Bryan Gurney.

Firefighters were able to make entry into the home through the front door and found a female victim on the couch in the living room. She was rescued from the home and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern, N.Y., where she was pronounced dead, Gurney says.
