Devastated family of woman who died after being found on fire ‘miss her every day’

The devastated family of a woman who died after being found on fire have said they miss her “every moment of every day”.

Sarah Hussein, 31, tragically passed away in hospital on July 23 after suffering severe burns.

She was found alight in Bury at around 7:30pm, where locals wrapped her in a wet duvet to try and help her until an ambulance arrived.

A murder probe was launched following her death and three men – aged 34, 24 and 26 – were arrested on suspicion of murder.

The trio have since been bailed pending further inquiries.

Detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

Sarah’s family, living in Pakistan, have now paid tribute to her via the force.

A statement said: “Sarah was the person in the family that everyone turned to for help and support both financially and emotionally.

“She was a very nice, kind, polite person who worked hard every day to support us all.

“We are devastated by the news of her death and that we were not there to help her.

“We feel helpless being so far away. We will all miss Sarah every moment of every day.”

Flowers piled up at the scene on East Street in the aftermath of the horror incident and local residents also shared social media messages saying they were “praying for her”.

Bury Council leader Eamonn O’Brien added: “I am truly saddened to hear about the death of a woman in Bury who suffered severe burns.

“We send our heartfelt condolences to her friends and family.”

GMP said their inquiries into the circumstances of Sarah’s death are continuing.
