Written by on 07/10/2020

The body of a man has been found following a house fire in Doncaster.

Emergency services were called to the scene in Leamington Gardens, Intake at around 1am today, Wednesday October 7.

When fire crews from Doncaster and Edlington arrived the house was said to be “completely smoke logged”.

Tragically the body of a man was found inside.

Crews extinguished the blaze by 1.30am and a joint South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Investigation is underway into the cause.

However, at this stage it is not thought to be suspicious.

A spokesman for the fire service said: “The thoughts of all at South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue are with the man’s family and friends at this extremely sad time.”
