A FOUR-YEAR-OLD boy died and his mother was seriously ill in hospital after fire ripped through a house in Blackcraigs, Kirkcaldy, Fife, early yesterday.

A neighbour battled to rescue Gordon Colville, 27, from the blaze. Firefighters managed to drag Connor Grieve, four, and his 24-year-old mother, Angela, from the house. All three were suffering from smoke inhalation and were taken to hospital, where Connor died. The cause of the blaze, which started on the first floor, was still under investigation.
