The fire is on the moors near the White House Pub on Halifax Road with roadblocks in place at The Moorcock Inn and Blackstone Edge Road.

Large quantities of smoke have led to road closures in the area on Halifax Rd (A58), so police are in attendance and the public should avoid the area if possible.
