A four-year-old boy has died after he and a 10-year-old child were rescued from a blaze at a house in West Yorkshire.
Emergency services were called to the property after smoke was seen rising from a rear bedroom at the home in Keighley, near Bradford, around 2pm on Monday.
Both children were rescued from the property and taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
