SEVERAL firefighters spent hours battling a large fire on the Storthes Hall university campus.
The blaze was spotted inside a large wooden building on the former mental hospital site in Kirkburton at 6.30pm last night.
Crew Manager Wayne Ogden from Huddersfield fire station said: “It was initially attended by crews from Skelmanthorpe and Huddersfield, but we realised urgent back up was needed.’’
The aerial appliance from Huddersfield poured water from above. The last firefighters left at 1am today. Fire investigators were to investigate the cause today.
