A FLAT occupant was given oxygen by firefighters after a fire broke out last night (Tuesday) in the Dearne Valley.
The cause of the ground-floor flat fire in Kilner Court, Denaby Main, was accidental, a fire service spokeswoman said.
Crews from Edlington, Dearne and Rotherham stations attended the scene at 6.40pm.
"The fire started on the ground-floor of the flat and the owner was given oxygen at the scene and checked over by paramedics," she added.
"The cause of the fire was accidental."
