A 35-year-old man has been rescued from a blaze that broke out at his home late last night.

Firefighters were called to the incident in Emerson Crescent, Parson Cross just before midnight last night.

They rescued the man, who was the only occupant inside the property, on arrival.

He is not believed to have sustained any serious injuries in the fire.

A South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said: "We got there early so were able to stop it from becoming a serious house fire, which it had the potential to be.

"It could have been much worse.

"We don't know what caused it yet, but fire investigation officers are due to return to the property to look into it today."

A total of three engines from the Elm Lane fire station were sent to extinguish the blaze.

They remained on the scene for around two hours.
