The Firewestyorkshire site will be closing in the near future. Updates will cease and gradually as the money runs out a renwall of the domain will not take place. I am sure that the site has been a great tool for many and I have been pleased to inform you of matters relating to the Area. I feel that the purpose has been served and as times move on Web sites have become dinosaurs and a little outdated. The speed of the internet and other media formats have been much improved and to this end a change is required. This will take us into the area of blogs and Twitter as a means of getting the news out to people who have specific interests, this done in a timely and more accurate manner, some incidents even being reported with Video links from the scene of an incident. In the meantime you can keep up with all the news on Twitter @Firewestyorkshire
To all those who supported the site in any way I thankyou very much indeed

No-one Involved in House Fire Mount Zion Road, Huddersfield 1st October 2012
Crews from Huddersfield and Elland fire stations had been called to the semi-detached house at 1.50am on Monday. Fire crews remained at the scene for several hours. Every room in the house had been badly affected by the fire. They had to wait more than 36 hours after the blaze to get inside and
carry out a search, because the Moldgreen house had been left in a
dangerous condition. Police and fire investigators finally entered the home on Mount Zion
Road yesterday afternoon with
officers now being able to establish that no-one had been inside when the
fire started. “We had to wait until engineers had made the building safe to get inside and until the heat from the fire had gone. “We still do not know the cause of the fire and the investigation is
now being carried out by police and the fire investigators.”
