Firefighters fight major blaze at a Morrisons bakery!

Over 50 firefighters were called to the Morrisons Bakery in Wakefield yesterday to tackle a huge blaze on site.

The fire is not being treated as suspicious and there were no serious injuries apart from smoke inhalation.


Here are some pictures captured by the Yorkshire fire service and a video from a local resident who was close to the scene when he heard the commotion.


Smoke billowing out of the factory which Morrisons hope you get back up and running in a matter of days. Recruitment for temporary labor has been put on hold and  we are unsure on permanent recruitment activity on the site however the site is not gutted an will carry on producing when it is safe to return.
