Family escape Rotherham house fire

A family of four have been very lucky after escaping a fire at their home.

Fire crews from Rotherham and Dearne stations were called at 9:15pm on Sunday night to the semi-detached house on Coupland Road in East Herringthorpe.

When firefighters arrived the family were already outside thanks to a smoke alarms alerting them to the fire.  The ground floor of the house was well alight.

The fire crews worked quickly using hose reels to get the fire under control.

The fire is believed to have started at a plug socket where a battery had been left to charge.
