A FAMILY narrowly avoided a Christmas tragedy.
Fire crews were called to George Avenue in Birkby at 10am yesterday after a TV was set on fire in the bedroom.
A mother had been woken by her baby and, so she did not wake her husband, she lit a candle instead of putting the light on.
The candle, which was on top of the TV, was not in a holder and started the fire.
Firefighters from Huddersfield arrived at the house, but the family had managed to put out the flames.
