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.
