Firefighters tackle Pudsey shed blaze

Firefighters this evening tackled a large blaze involving a garden shed and nearby trees in Pudsey.

The fire service was called to the fire at 7.17pm, with three appliances arriving on the scene in the Mount Pleasant Road area.

A large jet and two hose reels were used to bring the fire under control. It’s understood no-one was injured in the blaze and that the fire did not spread to nearby houses.

Smoke from the blaze could be seen as far away as Farnley and Farsley.

Police and paramedics also attended the scene.

One eyewitness told The Dispatch:

“It was a ferocious blaze, the smoke went up really high. We thought it was going to spread to the houses, but luckily the fire brigade arrived and soon got it under control.”
