Toddler killed in fire at house

A two-year-old boy has died in a house fire in Cheshire, the fire service has said.

Fire crews were called to a terraced property in Myrtle Street in Crewe shortly before 0900 GMT.

Four firefighters went into the house and rescued the toddler from a bedroom, but he died at the scene.

Two other children – a baby and a three-year-old – were lowered to safety from a first floor window by their parents before firefighters arrived.

The surviving children, their parents and two neighbours were taken to hospital by ambulance.

The fire service and police have started an investigation into the cause of the fire.
