Firefighters are being praised after dealing with a fire at a sheltered housing complex in Rotherham.
The fire started in a kitchen of a flat on Queen Street in Swinton. A woman in her 80's was lead to safety given oxygen and then taken to hospital for a check up.
Some residents were evacuated as a precaution and two carers were treated for smoke inhalation after helping evacuate residents. It is thought the fire started from a toaster before spreading to the rest of the kitchen.
Group Manager Simon Rodgers said: “The flat was full of thick, black smoke and the first firefighters on the scene did a fantastic job of leading the resident to safety, dealing with the fire and looking after the other older people who were living in flats nearby. They did a brilliant job.”
