The fire started in a bedroom and was able to be confined to that room, however other parts of the house were smoke and fire damaged.
The woman's death shortly follows the death of 10-year-old Ariki River Baden Mau who was rushed to hospital on Monday afternoon after being involved in a suspicious fire in a derelict building on Heretaunga St West.
He died early the following morning and the 9-year-old boy also taken to hospital in a serious condition is now in a stable condition in Hawke's Bay Hospital.
