Firefighters called to house with smoke billowing from windows

Firefighters attended a house in Sheepridge last night after neighbours reported smoke coming from the ground floor windows.

Three engines - one from Rastrick and two from Huddersfield - were called to the property on Belle Vue Crescent at 9.15pm and could not locate the occupier of the house.

They broke in to the property to discover a pan had been left on the hob of the cooker. There were no flames and the problem was dealt with quickly and easily.

The owner of the house was no where to be seen.

Firefighters said the neighbours had been alerted to the smoke by alarms going off inside the house. If it had not been for these, the smoking hob could have developed into a full blown fire, causing serious damage.

Good morning!
