FOUR engines were scrambled to extinguish a fire at a high rise flats building in Bradford city centre last night.

Appliances from Bradford, Fairweather Green, Odsal and Shipley fire stations were called at 11.30pm Monday to an electrial fire on the ground floor of Douglas Towers on Radwell Drive.

A spokesperson from the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said an electrical fault caused a small fire on the ground floor of the building.

He said: "It was small fire and a fire extinguisher was used to put it out, but smoke went up through the internal ducting to the third floor.

"A few people from the lower floors left the building, but we didn't evacuate the rest of the building because we dealt with the fire quickly.

"There was a big turnout from the fire stations because it was a high rise building but some of them were turned back because the fire was dealt with quickly.
