Dog saved from burning farmhouse in Rotherham

Have your say

FIRE CREWS rescued a woman from a fire at a farmhouse in Rotherham this morning, and then risked entering the flaming property to save a dog.

Firefighters were called to the house in Long Lane, Treeton at 3.20am and used a ladder to get the woman, aged in her 30s, to safety from the first floor.

Two other residents were already safely outside the residence when crews arrived.

Around 15 firefighters from Rotherham and Aston Park stations tackled the blaze and used breathing apparatus to enter the smoke filled house and rescue a dog after all persons were accounted for.

The fire is thought to have started in the kitchen and the cause is currently under investigation, but it is believed to be accidental.
