FIREFIGHTERS were called out to deal with a burning abandoned vehicle near a Keighley-district pub early this morning.

It is believed the Ford Ranger had been deliberately set alight after hitting a wall in Keighley Road, Hainworth, near The Guide Inn.

One crew from Keighley fire station attended after the alarm was raised at 2.35am.

The firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used a hose reel jet to tackle the blaze. They spent about two hours at the scene.

The vehicle was destroyed.

Police are investigating.
