A BARN was destroyed by a blaze which swept through it.
The fire happened at a turkey farm near Dalton around 1am yesterday.
The 20 metre by 10 metre barn full of hay at Wellhouse Farm, off Wellhouse Lane and close to Dalton Bank Road, was burned to the ground.
Watch manager Andy Blackburn from Huddersfield Fire Station took command at the scene.
He said: “When we got there the side and roof of the barn had collapsed. You could see the fire from across the valley.
“It was difficult getting water up there so we had to call for crews from Brighouse and Mirfield to pump the water from Dalton Bank Road.”
Fire investigators from West Yorkshire Fire And Rescue Service are probing the cause of the blaze.
