A woman escaped unharmed from a house fire in Balby, Doncaster, early today.

Fire crews were called at 4.30am to the mid-terrace property on Balby Road where they found the occupant, a woman in her 50s, was already outside.

The fire was contained to the bathroom and is thought to have been started by a discarded cigarette.

Doncatser and Edlingotn firefighters spent more than an hour at the incident but the woman did not need medical attention.
