I worked on Red Watch at Bradford central from 1977 until 1991 and I attended both the garage incident as first shout and also the Preston Street (City Road Goods Yard) job on the Sunday after the initial fire which happened on the Saturday night.
The Garage incident happened about ten thirty in the morning when a leaking acetylene cylinder exploded when a worker turned on the hot water boiler.
Although I can't remember the exact turnout I do remember there was a serious fire involving the decimated garage and all of the surrounding buildings having all of their windows blown out.
There were two casualtys in this incident and another two were rescued and transported to the Hospital.
Station Officer Ken Daphne was the initial officer in charge of the garage incident and Red Watch were in attendance until change of shift on Saturday evening.
If you want any further information please contact me.

I see the Co op on Duckworth Lane had another fire recently, A smaller one by the turnout.
I bet their Insurers are wondering what, why etc?
If memory serves me right, Didn't they have an incident about 18 months ago at night?
