Floral tributes have been left outside a fire-damaged house where a woman died.
Crews tried to save the victim from the terraced home in Middlesbrough's Costa Street on Friday, April 2.
The woman, who was in her early 40s, suffered serious burns in the blaze, which ripped through the property in the Gresham area of town at around 1.30pm.
Cleveland Police confirmed the woman sadly died from her injuries at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in the early hours of Monday.
A spokeswoman for the force said officers are still investigating the cause of the fire which is being treated as unexplained.
Police are warning vehicle owners to be vigilant following four thefts of catalytic convertors in Stockton and Middlesbrough.
It is believed Hondas and Toyota vehicles have been targeted.
Three reports were from Stockton and one in Middlesbrough.
Police are advising motorists to park your vehicle in a garage if possible, consider installing private CCTV and installing good quality lighting to potentially deter opportunist thieves.
Anyone with information about thefts of catalytic convertors or vehicle crime is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
