A climbing and activity centre at Crossflatts was smoke logged this afternoon when cardboard caught fire.

A crew from Keighley Fire Station used a special ventilation fan to help clear The Climbing Barn of fumes.

Firefighters were alerted at 4.40pm.

“An electric fan heater had set the cardboard alight,” said a fire service spokesman.

“Staff had put out the fire when we arrived and the building was safely evacuated.”
