Baby in hospital after house fire

Three adults and a baby were taken to hospital after a fire ripped through their home and a next door property in East Yorkshire.

Firefighters tackled the blaze on Cranbrook Avenue in Hull for two hours on Wednesday night.

The baby, its parents and another woman were taken to Hull Royal Infirmary suffering from shock and smoke inhalation.

It is not believed the residents of the adjoining house were injured.

A spokesman for Humberside Police said officers together with Humberside Fire and Rescue were investigating if the fire was started deliberately.

Cranbrook Avenue and nearby roads were closed while firefighters dealt with the incident.
