Boy, 4, dies in Keighley house fire

A four -year-old boy has died in a house fire in Keighley. A 10-year-old boy, who was also in the house, is being treated for serious injuries in hospital, although they are not thought to be life-threatening.

Police and firefighters were called to a house on Sunnyhill Grove at just after 2pm after smoke was seen coming from a back bedroom.

On attending police found two boys aged 10 and four had been brought out of the house. Both were taken to hospital with serious injuries from smoke inhalation where the four year old died.

The cause of the fire, which was confined to a back bedroom, remains under investigation.

Initial enquiries are underway with colleagues in the fire service to determine the cause of this fire and are at a very early stage. Clearly this has been a tragic incident in which a young child has lost his life and a full investigation will be carried out.>
