The cause of the fire at property in Don Street, Conisbrough, remains under investigation, but fire investigators have confirmed the blaze involved bedding in the main bedroom on the first floor of the property.

They also say that they found no evidence of working smoke alarms inside the property and have urged residents to fit smoke alarms in their homes and to make sure they are working properly.

Area manager Steve Green, said: “This was a truly tragic incident and our thoughts are very much with all of those affected. Multi-agency investigations into what caused the fire are still ongoing.
