Fire crews rushed to a house in South Elmsall last night (Saturday) after neighbours reported seeing children playing in a house before it caught fire.

Officers attended the three-storey derelict house on Albany Street but nobody was found inside.

Crews used two hose reels, one jet and four breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire and a high power fan to clear the property of smoke.

The fire also spread to the roof void of a neighbouring property.
