A woman in her 50’s was taken to hospital suffering from chest pains following a house fire in Denholme.

Fire crews from Illingworth and Fairweather Green were called to Wells Head at 8pm on Sunday and the occupier was given oxygen by firefighters but refused the attendance of an ambulance.

Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus dealt with the fire. They then used a large fan to clear the house of smoke.
