Two other women escaped the building and were taken to hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation. One is believed to be Alina's 18-year-old daughter Milena Kordaszewska.
Fire investigators were seen in the house on Thursday morning.

The house was sealed off by police tape as the investigation into what caused the fire continued.
