Two fire engines were called out to a factory fire at Peter Jackson and Sons in Bowers Mill, Barkisland this morning (Monday).

The incident occured at around 9.30am at the textile manufacturers, but the factory owner was able to put out the fire before the crews arrived, preventing it from becoming more serious.

It was described as a minor fire but had the potential to be far greater due to the combustible substances on the property.
