Fire in Darfield Fire in Darfield


A MAN has died after a fire at a house on Woodhall Road in Darfield.

Three fire engines from Cudworth, Barnsley and Tankersley stations were called to the fire at 4:40pm on Tuesday.

The ground floor of the semi-detached house was well alight. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to extinguish the fire.

The man, who is believed to be in his sixties, was the only person in the property at the time.

A full investigation into the cause of the fire will take place on Wednesday.

Poor guy. They should have left the brampton station open they might have got there quicker and been able to save the guy. And why did the manvers one not respond to it seen at its there for incase this type of thing happens.

Steph i live next door to the man in question my wife broke the door in to try to get to him but was beaten back by the flames and smoke before the fire service got there but i agree brampton would have been quicker possibly but the fire had taken hold really quickly and the fire officer said he had never seen such a bad fire . we are all sad for the loss of a good friend and neighbour

Just had lass from fire service checking homes in darfield making sure homes are fitted with smoke alarms.

I didn't know or hear about the blaze untill she told me, I have 2 young kids and now I'm going to check my alarms every week without fail.

Rest In Peace to the man who's life was taken, and thoughts are with his family.
