A CAR fire spread to the side of a house yesterday.

Firefighters from Rawdon were called to Barfield Avenue, Yeadon, at 2.25pm. 

The vehicle was in carport when a fire started in the bonnet.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesman said it quickly spread to the side of the house, burning through a plastic door, and leaving the house smoke logged.

The couple in the house got out, but the car was destroyed in the fire.

Firefighters spent around an-hour-and-a-half at the scene.
