A 38-year-old woman has died in a house fire in Point Grey, despite the efforts of neighbours to save her.

Two other occupants of the home on West 6th Avenue were pulled from the fire by a woman who lives next door and her three houseguests — who were visiting from Calgary — on Sunday night.

A 94-year-old woman and a man in his 30s were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation and burns.

The Good Samaritans “performed heroic deeds in attempting to help in the rescue,” said Vancouver fire Chief Gabe Roder.

“(They) made every attempt to enter the home and rescue the female victim from the loft of the burning home. Unfortunately, the heat and smoke were just too intense.”

Investigators have determined the fire was accidental but haven’t pinpointed the cause.
