An investigation is underway after a fire broke out at a rag mill in Dewsbury last night.

Fire crews were called to the mill, on Huddersfield Road, at around 8pm yesterday evening to find the two-storey building on fire. Four fire pumps from Dewsbury, Mirfield and Ossett were used and the blaze was brought under control within an hour. Relief crews from Batley and Cleckheaton attended the scene at around midnight to ensure remaining flames were extinguished. No-one was injured during the incident.

It is unclear how the blaze started but it is believed to have caused permanent damage to the property. There will be a safety inspection this morning at 10am.
