Firefighters last night tackled a blaze in a derelict Keighley building.

The fire affected the first floor and loft of a former home, Parkwood House, in Parkwood Street.

Crews from Keighley and Bingley were called out the incident at 11.30pm and spent about two hours at the scene.

“We placed ladders up to the windows and put water jets through to deal with the fire,” said a brigade spokesman.

He added: “We don’t know the cause of the fire but the building is empty and we have been called up there several times before.”
