Fire crews were called this morning at 7am to a flat fire on Doncaster Road in Goldthorpe, Barnsley.
The flat which was above a shop was well alight when firefighters from Dearne, Adwick and Edlington attended.
There was no-one in the flat at the time and the fire crews worked hard to keep the fire contained to just one room.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to tackle the fire.
Fire crews left the scene at 11am.
An investigation into the cause of the fire will now take place, though initial thoughts are that this was an accidental fire.
