Baby taken to hospital after fire

A BABY was taken to hospital after a fire started at a Little Hulton flat.

Firefighters were called to the property in Manchester Road East at 11.50pm yesterday after the blaze began in the kitchen.

It was caused by a pan of food being left unattended while cooking.

A Fire Service spokesman said: “We used a positive pressure ventilator to clear smoke from the kitchen.

“A woman, aged 19, and a baby boy, aged 11 months, suffered breathing problems and were taken to hospital as a precaution and were later discharged.

“It’s another reminder to people to keep an eye on their food while cooking.”
