AN elderly couple were treated by paramedics after a cooker fire at their Doncaster home.

Firefighters were called to the property in Beech Road, Skellow, when a kettle left on the hob set alight.

The pair, aged in their 80s, were treated for smoke inhalation. They were not taken to hospital.

Two crews from Adwick and Askern spent around an hour at the scene after arriving at 1.25am on Thursday.

An automatic fire alarm alerted emergency services.
