Have your say

A MAN was rescued by firefighters from a blaze at his house in Doncaster after he dozed off while cooking some food.

The man, in his 50s, fell asleep in the living room at his home on Common Lane, Auckley, as he was cooking on the kitchen grill at around 9pm on Sunday.

Firefighters had to break down the front door before bringing the man out and giving him oxygen. He was taken to hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
