63-year-old Ms. Seeram perished after flames engulfed her two-bedroom home in Carapichaima.
Eyewitnesses say the fire started shortly after 4 am yesterday.
Fire officers from Chaguanas were able to contain and extinguish the blaze but the house was completely destroyed.
Ms. Seeram’s son, Bijue who escaped from the burning house, said he was asleep and was awakened by smoke.
However his mother’s remains were later found on the floor of her bedroom next to her bed.
Preliminary investigations by fire prevention officers indicate that an electrical issue may have caused the fire.
