Six children were rescued from a house after a fire broke out in the attic.
A passer-by and neighbours helped lead the children and an adult from the house in Colne Road as fire crews raced to the address yesterday.
The crews arrived at the scene at 3-45pm and used breathing apparatus and a hose reel to extinguish the blaze.
One woman was taken to hospital for treatment after suffering burns to her finger.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
