The death of a woman whose body was found following a house fire is now being treated as murder after a post mortem revealed she was dead before the blaze.

The 37-year-old woman was discovered in the house in Darling Street .. Narre Warren in Melbourne's south-east on December 14.

Police initially believed her death was not suspicious but the post mortem revealed her injuries indicated she was the victim of foul play.

Homicide detectives are hoping to hear from a witness who is believed to have seen a green Ford sedan flee from the area shortly before the fire was reported.
