A BLAZE in a bedroom threatened an ancient farmhouse in Mirfield.
The fire broke out in the old farmhouse on the Kirklees park estate behind the Three Nuns public house off Leeds Road at 9pm last night (Monday).
Three fire crews from Mirfield and Batley attended the scene and used one hose reel and four breathing apparatus to fight the blaze.
A fire service spokesman said the male householder had prevented the fire spreading by closing doors as he left the property.
The bedroom was badly damaged and there was smoke and water damage to other parts of the house.
The cause of the fire is being investigated
