The body of an unidentified woman was found in a house that caught fire in Langley, B.C., on Sunday night.          

Firefighters received a call from someone driving by reporting smoke from the car port at 203rd Street and Grade Crescent around 9 p.m. PT.

They arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the house and flames burning through the roof.  Live wires were also sparking and arcing in the bushes nearby, until BC Hydro was able to shut off the power.

Firefighters found the body of the woman inside, after managing to put the fire out. The victim's name has not been released.

Investigators are expected to return to the site Monday morning, to attempt to determine the cause of the fire.
