A blaze broke out in a roof above a shop in Tingley last night (Tuedsay).

Fire crews from Dewsbury were called to a flat above the One Stop Shop store at Skye Road at around 7.30pm.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said that much of the roof void was involved in the fire.

Crews use one jet, one hose reel, two breathing apparatus and an aerial from Leeds to extinguish the fire.

Nobody was in the property at the time and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

The scene was cleared by around 9.30pm.
