BERWICK, Maine (AP) - Maine fire marshals say a Berwick woman was seriously injured when fire broke out in her house.

They say 63-year-old Rebecca Galleshaw suffered severe smoke inhalation and was transferred to a Boston hospital Friday afternoon.

Firefighters found her in her bed after they were called to her house at about 8:30 a.m.

Investigators said the fire started in electrical wiring in the basement. Fire damage was confined to the basement, but the rest of the one story house had heavy smoke damage.
