FIREFIGHTERS spent hours at the scene of a huge fire in Greetland.
They were called to early-morning reports of a fierce blaze at an isolated farmhouse.
Crews from Huddersfield, Brighouse, Elland, Dewsbury, Illingworth, Odsal, Cleckheaton and Halifax spent much of yesterday at the blaze at a farm and outbuilding in Far Turbury Farm, Clegg Lane, Upper Greetland.
Crews were initially called out around 5.30am on Wednesday.
And at the height of the blaze around 40 firefighters were at the scene.
Around 50% of the farm and building was affected.
A safety cordon was thrown around the scene as there were fears over the risks posed by three oxyacetylene cylinders at the site and a 300-gallon tank of diesel oil.
All those had to be cooled down for several hours to prevent further fires or an explosion.
It was the third time in recent weeks that firefighters have been faced with potentially deadly acetylene cylinders.
One caused hundreds of people to be evacuated in Birkby and the other was at the PDSA clinic in Huddersfield.
Crews use two breathing apparatus sets, two jets and two ground monitors to fight the blaze.
At one point, the fire brought down a section of roof in the farm building.
Firefighters spent much of the day at the scene damping down.
No-one was hurt in the incident and the cause of the fire is being investigated.
