Girl, 5, orphaned as fire kills mum, dad and brother

A COUPLE and their three-year old-son died in a fire which left their five-year-old daughter an orphan as she fought for her own life last night.

Fire investigators and police have yet to establish how the blaze started, although it is believed to have broken out on the ground floor of the family's home in South Street, Highfields, Doncaster, while they were asleep upstairs early yesterday.

Heavily-pregnant Michelle Colley, who was in her mid-20s, was seen screaming at a rear bedroom window and some neighbours tried to rescue the family using a ladder and garden hose.
