Man dies in Sheffield fire

A man in his 80s has tragically died after a fire in Sheffield.

Firefighters from Rivelin, Central and Parkway were called to the blaze, which was on the second floor of an industrial unit on Balaclava Road, Sheffield, at 11.05am on Tuesday 2 November.

Upon arrival a number of crews were sent into the building to tackle the fire and search for any persons inside. Sadly they discovered the body of a man who was unable to be revived.

A joint police and fire investigation is currently on-going into the circumstances surrounding this incident.

Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends at this sad time.
