Family escape house fire

A family have escaped a serious fire at their home on Apley Road in Hype Park, Doncaster at 4pm on Wednesday.

Four fire engines from Maltby, Doncaster, Aston Park and Edlington stations were called to the incident.

The family were already outside when the crews arrived, a man was suffering from slight smoke inhalation.

The fire was in a bedroom of the mid terrace house. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to put the fire out.

The adjoining properties were also affected by smoke, so both houses were evacuated as a precaution.

An investigation into the cause of the fire will now take place.
