FIRE crews were today still damping down after a large blaze in Mill Lane in West Bowling.

A fire officer was at the scene this morning to assess the situation at the four-storey Ivy Mills former textile mill building after the fire broke out on Saturday morning.

The cause of the fire has yet to be established.

Fire crews from Keighley and Batley were among those doing shifts at the site last night, with Bradford's day crew taking over this morning.

At its height, 12 fire crews were battling the blaze and the roof of the building collapse.

The upper three floors of the building were disused but the ground floor contained two businesses, Realize Concept Interior Ltd and H20 Auto Tint and Valet Centre.
