They found a single-storey building, which measured around 70m x 30m, ablaze.

Half of the building was consumed by flames, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said.

They used a jet hose, two hose-reel jets, and four breathing apparatus to bring it under control. A high-powered fan was then used to clear smoke from the property.
