A couple who spotted a fire at their neighbour’s home got their hose pipe out and tried to extinguish it before fire crews arrived.

Dewsbury firefighters attended the incident on Denby Road in Emley, at around 12.30pm today.

A spokesman said a motorbike caught fire and the flames spread to two cars on the drive way and damaged a door and window. The neighbours raised the alarm and tried to keep the blaze at bay until fire crews arrived.
