THREE children had to be rescued from a house in Pudsey following a fire last night.

Crews from Bradford, Shipley and Stanningley fire stations attended the incident at a property on Delph End, at around 7.05pm, after a blaze broke out on the ground floor.

Three children were rescued from an upstairs bedroom and were checked over at the scene by ambulance crews.

They were later taken to hospital for a precautionary check-up, and had suffered slight smoke inhalation, West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service said.
