A FOUR-year-old boy is being treated for 20 per cent burns at a specialist children’s hospital after a fire at a house in Kitt Green.

Firefighters from Wigan were called to an address in Anson Place yesterday shortly after 10am.

Whe they arrived, the fire had already been put out but the young boy needed emergency treatment.

He had sustained burns across the front of his body.

Paramedics attended and administered treatment and the boy was later transferred to Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool.

Firefighters have declined to disclose further details about the circumstances of the incident.
