And the fire is believed to have started accidentally.

Crews from Dewsbury and Morley also attended.

Harry Dunn was travelling on the 127 bus from Ossett to Dewsbury when he took these pictures of the scene.

Smoke can be seen in the windows of the property and several fire engines are at the bungalow to extinguish the blaze.
