A 12-YEAR-OLD boy left critically ill following a house fire in Penistone has died as a result of his injuries.

Emergency services were called to a house on Tennyson Close at around 6.30pm last Wednesday.

A man and his two sons were rescued from the property by firefighters but Darren Sykes, 44, and his nine-year-old son Paul both died as a result of the fire.

His older son Jack was taken to hospital in a critical condition but lost his fight for life on Monday night.

Detectives investigating the fire have confirmed it was started deliberately and that an accelerant was used.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident.

The investigation continues on behalf of the coroner.
