A fire which killed a two-year-old girl in Doncaster may have started accidentally, investigators have said.
Fire crews rescued Libby-Jayne Hornsby from an upstairs bedroom after being called to a house in Don Street, Conisbrough, last Thursday.
She was taken to hospital where she later died.
Police and the fire service said early indications showed the fire, which took hold in bedding in the main bedroom, may have started accidentally.
South Yorkshire Police said Libby-Jayne was in the house with her six-year-old-year old brother, another 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old babysitter.
An inquest is due to be opened next week.
