FIREFIGHTERS were called out to tackle two separate blazes in Stanbury, near Keighley, today.

Crews from Keighley, Bingley and Illingworth dealt with a fire in the roof of a converted farmhouse.

They spent about four hours at the scene, until late morning.

It is believed the fire had started in the chimney of the detached property and then spread.

"We managed to prevent the fire spreading any further than the roof area but there was water damage to the rest of the property," said a brigade spokesman.

Then at about 4.30pm the Keighley crew returned to Stanbury when a tractor caught fire in a field near the village school.

It is believed an electrical fault caused the blaze, which extensively damaged the John Deere tractor.

The farmer using the vehicle at the time was uninjured.
