Fire crew rescue woman from sixth floor of Little Horton block of flats

Firefighters broke down a door to rescue a woman trapped in her flat.
The woman was taken to Bradford Royal Infirmary for precautionary checks after falling asleep while leaving a pan on the hob.
When she woke she could not find her keys to get out so rang 999 and was told to close the kitchen door, get into another room and wait for firefighters.
Bradford watch commander Alan Holdsworth said: “There are a couple of lessons to be learned here.
“Never leave food on the hob unattended and keep your keys with you when you go to bed – and your mobile phone.
“Lucky for the lady she had her phone and was able to call for help.”
Firefighters dealt with the burned-out pan and opened windows to clear the smoke.
