Emergency services are currently at the scene of the fire in Balby Road after fire broke out in a property earlier this afternoon.

Video footage from the scene shows flames licking through the roof off a multi-storey property opposite Westfield Park.

Firefighters have been using an aerial platform to tackle the blaze which has sent a large plume of smoke into the skies in the surrounding area.
