A two-year-old girl has died following a house fire in South Yorkshire.
A neighbour alerted the emergency services to the blaze in Don Street, Conisbrough, near Doncaster, shortly before 8pm last night.
The toddler was rescued by firefighters from a bedroom window but died later in hospital.
A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: "A two-year-old girl was taken to hospital where sadly she died from her injuries.
"Police believe that no one else was injured during the incident and inquiries are ongoing to establish the exact circumstances around the fire."
A statement from South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said two crews battled the fire.
"A team of firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the property and located the fire in an upstairs bedroom," it said.
"A young child was rescued from the bedroom but sadly died."
An investigation into the cause of the fire will begin today, it added.
