"It was going like mad for a while," said a spokesperson for Rawdon Fire Station. "The building was compromised but luckily it didn't spread to the surrounding businesses." 

A spokesperson for Stanningley Fire Station added: "The crews were on top of it."

There were no injuries in the incident.

Appliances from Otley, Rawdon, Cookridge, Leeds, Shipley and Stainningley attended with supporting resources and specialist officers.

An aerial ladder platform along with two large jets, two hose reels and four breathing apparatus were used to battle the fire.

The A659 Pool Road was closed both ways between Old Pool Road and the Shell petrol station at Pool but the road reopened mid-afternoon as crews dampened down the site.
