9:00am Thursday 20th February 2014 in News
Firefighters have urged people to make sure their electrical appliances are in good working order after a fire started in a Keighley flat while the owner was out.
Crews from Shipley and Keighley were called to a fire on Church Street in the town centre at 7.50pm on Tuesday.
A fire had started in a bedroom with the suspected cause being a faulty extension cord.
They were at the scene for about an hour and used breathing apparatus, a hose and a ventilation fan to extinguish the fire and clear the building of smoke.
Around a quarter of the flat was damaged by fire and smoke.
