Bradford fire: Hundreds of homes evacuated as ‘flames & thick smoke’ engulf town
Nearly 100 firefighters are currently tackling the blaze at Drummonds Mill, on Lumb Lane in Manningham, which started just before 11.30 am in the basement of a four story building.
Flames and thick black smoke can be seen coming from the burning building in images and videos shared on social media.
Eye-witnesses accounts from the scene claim the fire is “getting worse.”
A West Yorkshire Fire Service spokesman said: “This is a four-story building used for storage and the fire is in the basement. Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus are tackling the fire, as well as one hose reel and one large jet.”
