A landlord has been charged with gross negligence manslaughter after two young boys died in a fire at a house where no working smoke alarms were fitted. Kamal Bains, 50, from Birkby, Huddersfield, will appear at Kirklees Magistrates’ Court next Friday, August 18, charged with two counts of the offence, West Yorkshire Police said. Logan Taylor, three, and two-year-old Jake Casey died in the blaze in Alder Street, Huddersfield, in February. Their mother and an older brother managed to flee the house before firefighters arrived. In the wake of the tragedy West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service’s deputy chief fire officer, Dave Walton, urged people to check they have working smoke alarms in their homes.
