Salem resident Barbara Windsor died Saturday following a freak fire at her home.

Mrs. Windsor died of asphyxiation after receiving burns to her face while lighting a cigarette. Mrs. Windsor, age 53, was using medical oxygen at the time she lit the cigarette with a cigarette lighter. The flame ignited the oxygen enriched air around Mrs. Windsor, resulting in the burns.

There was no damage to the home.
