Fire crews were this morning battling a house blaze in Paddock.
Huddersfield firefighters were called to Royds Avenue shortly before 11am as flames shot high into the sky.
It's now understood the fire started in a shed and spread into the house and that no one is believed to have been in at the time.
Fire crews were this morning battling the blaze with several hoses and using a mobile platform.
It is not known what caused the fire.
Eyewitness Alan Milnes, who lives in nearby Longwood Edge, captured the video.
He said: “My wife was outside and said there was something burning.
“I looked across and saw plumes of thick black smoke pouring into the sky.
“I realised it was a lot more serious than someone burning some rubbish and walked down to see the flames shooting out of the top of the house.
“I have to praise the fire crews; they were on the scene within a couple of minutes and started tackling the fire straight away. They were doing a great job”
