Crews from Ilkley, Silsden and Otley Fire Stations responded to a report of smoke coming from a door leading to the cellar of a public house. On arrival crews passed a priority message to increase the attendance to 4 fire engines, and shortly after to 5, for additional personnel. They confirmed this was a basement involved in fire.
Additional appliances from Keighley and Shipley were mobilised.
4 breathing apparatus and 2 hose reels were used to extinguish the fire and positive pressure ventilation fans were used to clear the smoke.
Specialist foam crews were also mobilised from Hunslet Fire Station due to this being a basement fire, however, they were stood down as not required prior to arrival.
