Firefighters were called to a blaze at a commercial garage at Millfold Way, Ripponden.

Two pumps from Halifax spent three hours at the scene yesterday afternoon.

Crew commander Mark Jones said cylinders were moved to a safe place away from the vehicle repair garage.

Vehicles were also removed.

“There was quite considerable damage internally - a lot of flame and smoke damage to walls and ceilings,” he said.

Garage equipment was also damaged.
