Around 11 fire appliances were called out earlier today to the building on Mill Lane, which is closed at its junctions with Hall Lane, Nelson Street, Manchester Road , Prospect Road and Caledonia Street, as the blaze is being brought under control.

The flames and smoke are not believed to be harmful and residents are being reassured that they can go about their daily business.

West Yorkshire Police are assisting the fire service.

"This is a big fire and people in the area will see smoke but there is no reason to be alarmed and there is no threat to residents. Emergency services are currently dealing with the situation and we are doing everything we can to minimise any disruption."

Chief Inspector Daniel Greenwood.
