Sparks from a brazier caused a fire at a house in Lawkholme.

The house in Back Caledonia Road was being renovated and contractors were working on the property at the time.

A spokesman for Keighley Fire Station said the fire started at about 2pm on April 5. The workmen at the house were alerted to the threat by a passer-by.

The Keighley engine and the Bingley appliance both responded, and no one was hurt in the incident.

The spokesman added: “The heat from the fire fractured a gas main, so we remained there until 3.45pm so Northern Gas could switch off the supply. There was damage to window frames on the house, and a wooden door to an outbuilding was completely destroyed.”
