North Road in Ravensthorpe was closed in both directions while firefighters dealt with a blaze at a takeaway near the bottom of the street.

Roosta King chicken grill was set ablaze soon after the owner opened up this morning.

It is thought the fire started when the owner switched on his rotisserie machine but firefighters stressed the cause of the fire is as yet unconfirmed.

Four fire engines and several police cars attended the scene, which is near to the Home Bargains store.

The road was closed in both directions and "massive" queues built up along Huddersfield Road, which runs through the centre of Ravensthorpe and Mirfield.

North Road back open

North Road is back open now and traffic is moving relatively well from Mirfield towards Ravensthorpe.

Some delays still on Huddersfield Road as you come to the the centre of Ravensthorpe but nothing too disruptive.

Investigation ongoing

The fire investigator is still determining the cause of the fire. We will update you as soon as we know more.

Jets of water fired down through roof

Firefighters used an aerial platform to fire jets of water down through the roof of the building. Once the fire was out four firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus entered the building to ensure the fire was totally out. They were followed by a fire investigator who is yet to confirm the cause of the fire. A next door grocery shop was evacuated as well.

This video shows water still cascading through the burnt remains of the takeaway.

Fire probably started when takeaway owner turned on a rotisserie

The lead firefighter at the scene says the fire probably started when the owner of Roosta King takeaway turned on his rotisserie appliance. A fire investigator is currently working inside the building so this is not yet confirmed.
