Fire crews put out an extractor fan on fire in Halifax earlier today.

Crews from Halifax and Elland were called to Bland Street, off Hopwood Lane, at 3pm.

The chip pan had caught fire and the occupier had managed to put out the flames but the extractor fan was still alight.

He had been alerted by his smoke alarm.

Firefighters put out the flames and cleared the house of smoke.
