Family Have Lucky Escape After Early Hours Fire

Monday December 23 2013

A FAMILY of five have had a lucky escape after a fire broke out in the kitchen of their home.

Two fire crews from Barnsley and Cudworth stations were called at around 3:30am on Friday morning to the house on Coniston Road in Barnsley.

The end terrace property was well alight when crews arrived.

The family were already safely outside the house after being woken by their alarm.

Firefighters used hose reels to put the fire out, which is believed to have started at the fridge freezer.

Crews left the scene at 5:30am.
