FIRE crews from throughout Kirklees have been battling a barn fire in Kirkheaton over night.
The blaze started at around 4pm yesterday in the unoccupied barn at Cockley farm off Cockley Hill Lane.
Piles of hay had caught fire and spread throughout the barn.
Firefighters have been at the scene all night moving the bales of hay and dousing them to get rid of the flames.
But they say embers inside the hay are catching fire again and making the job more difficult.
Crews from Huddersfield and Dewsbury will be at the scene throughout Saturday until the threat of fire has gone.
