THREE people - including two children - needed hospital treatment after a house fire in Otley.

The incident took place on The Crossways at about 1.30am on Wednesday, July 11 and caused extensive damage to a semi-detached house.

Fire crews from Cookridge, Rawdon and Ilkley were called out and helped one man and two boys who had suffered smoke inhalation.

They received oxygen at the scene before being taken to hospital by ambulance.

The firefighters used a hose reel, a large jet, two breathing apparatus and positive pressure ventilation to tackle the blaze, which they say affected '100 per cent' of the property.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
