Police have confirmed the boy who tragically died in yesterday’s house fire at Sunnyhill Grove in Keighley was four-year-old Nathan Harrison.

Enquiries are continuing this evening into the cause of the fire.

The boy was one of two children who had been taken from a house in Sunnyhill Grove, yesterday afternoon (Monday).

They were transported to hospital suffering from serious injuries linked to smoke inhalation. The four-year-old died in hospital while the second child, a ten-year-old boy, was said to be recovering last night.

Det Supt Simon Atkinson said: “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.”

The boys were discovered when emergency services were called to the house just after 2pm. Smoke had been seen coming from a back bedroom.
