Residents in nearby Kirk Sandall and Barnby Dun were told to stay indoors and keep doors and windows closed at the height of the blaze as plumes of thick, black smoke rose from the roof of the building on Sandall Stones Road.

There were no casualties in the incident, which began shortly afterb 12.30pm yesterday and it is not yet known what sparked the blaze which was attended by six fire engines.

No-one was thought to be working inside the factory and showroom at the time although the roof and interiors appear to have been severely damaged in the fire, which did not spread to adjoining properties.

Investigators will return to the Kirk Sandall firm today in a bid to establish the cause.
