Fire crews tackle bin chute blaze in Keighley high-rise flats

Fire crews were called to a blaze in a high-rise block of flats.

Firefighters from Keighley, Illingworth, Bingley and Shipley, plus an aerial appliance from Bradford, were called to Kennedy House, Hainworth Lane, Keighley, at around 2pm today (Saturday), where a bin chute on the first floor of the building was on fire.

The fire was confined to the chute and an aqua pack was used to put it out.

West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said the number of appliances sent is the “pre-determined attendance” for such incidents, mobilised as a precautionary measure.
