FIREFIGHTERS battled a blaze in an empty house.
Crews from Dewsbury went to Garden Street in Ravensthorpe just before 6.30pm on Friday.
They had to break into the terrace house, which was boarded up and for sale.
Five firefighters wearing breathing gear searched the house, but no-one was inside. The other houses in the block were all evacuated.
Firefighter Chris Gregg said: "It was quite a large house and it took a while to search it fully.
"It seems fires began at the same time in the living room and upstairs."
Police are investigating.
