Driver freed by firefighters after crash

FIRE crews freed a trapped driver following a crash in Brinsworth on Saturday.

The man was taken to Rotherham Hospital after staff from Darnall, Mansfield Road and Rotherham stations cut him out on Whitehill Road shortly after 1pm.

The female driver of a second car was treated at the crash scene by paramedics.

That morning, two engines from Rotherham station had been called to a stock yard on Doncaster Road, Thrybergh where a fork lift truck had caught fire.

They arrived at 6am and stayed for around an hour-and-a-half, extinguishing the blaze with a water jet.

In Broom, two crews were called to a kitchen fire on Oakwood Grove at around 5pm the same day.

A pan left unattended had caught fire, but was extinguished before fire engines arrived.

The crews from Rotherham station used fans to ventilate the house, which suffered minor smoke damage.
