Firefighters were called to the same street twice in just three hours in Siddal.

The crew from Halifax tackled a tree fire at around 4.30am this morning (Tuesday) in Backhold Lane believed to have been started accidently.

They then returned to the scene after receiving calls of a garage fire at around 7am. Minor damage was caused to the property.

The crew used a hose reel to tackle both fires.
