Images taken at the scene revealed a blazing fire and smoke billowing up in the air.

The fire service says the building is "100 per cent involved in flame" and the road is closed.

A spokesperson for the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "We currently have five crews and the aerial appliance from Leeds in attendance at a fire in Wesley Road in Armley.

"The building is a single storey structure and it is 100 per cent involved in flame.

"Firefighters are currently using four large jets to extinguish the fire."

The fire provided an update at 4.15pm, and said at the time "damping down is now in progress".

Traffic alerts are reporting "Wesley Road is closed both ways and there is slow traffic due to building fire between Tong Road and Town Street.

"Drivers are advised to seek an alternative route. Traffic is slightly heavier than normal around the closure as a result."

In addition to Bradford and Cleckheaton, crews from Morley, Killingbeck and Dewsbury stations and an aerial from Leeds Fire Station are at the scene.
