Homes Evacuated After West Yorkshire Fire

Homes were evacuated and a major road was closed after a possible arson attack at a shop in Keighley.

Eight fire-engines tackled the fire at Poundstretcher store on Cavendish Street on Tuesday night, closing the A6035 Bradford Road in both ways. Nearby homes were also evacuated as a precaution. No one was hurt.

Most of the single storey building was affected by the blaze. Investigating officers have not ruled out arson as a cause of the fire.
