UPDATE: Fatal farmhouse fire believed to be accidental

UPDATE: Following  investigation, farmhouse fire is believed to be accidental

Fire crews were called to a farmhouse on Spout Lane in the Stannington area of Sheffield at 3.10am on Monday morning.

When crews from Rivelin, Central and Elm Lane stations arrived at the scene the farmhouse was well alight. The fire is now out and crews are damping down at the scene.

We are sad to report that the body of a woman, believed to be in her 90s, has been discovered. A second body, believed to be a man in his 90s, has now been recovered.

Whilst the fire investigation is still on going, it is thought that the blaze started accidentally and the cause is likely to be cooking related.
