Firefighters rescued a person from the thirteenth floor of a block of flats after fire broke out this evening (Sunday).

Officers from Stanks, Hunslet, Gipton and Hunslet attended the fire at Marlborough Towers, Park Lane, Woodhouse, at around 8.50pm.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus to help the person to safety and put out the flames.

Meanwhile, firefighters from Leeds, Hunslet and Stanningley were called out to a former medical centre at Carcroft, Armley just after 8.05pm.

The two-storey building, which was derelict, was entirely engulfed.
