Two boys die in house fire in Huddersfield


Two boys believed to be aged two and three have died after a house fire in Huddersfield.

A woman and another child were able to escape from the property in Alder Street before emergency services arrived at the scene.

West Yorkshire Police were called to the address shortly before 2.15pm on Saturday to reports of people trapped inside.

Fire crews removed the two toddlers from the house, but they were pronounced dead a short time later.

Enquiries into the cause of the fire continue, but it is not believed to be suspicious at this time.
