Fire - On Saturday morning last, a fire broke out in the boiler-house attached to the mill of Messrs Denison, Teale & Co, Henshaw, Yeadon : but through the prompt exertions of the workmen and the neighbours the fire was got out without doing more than £30 or £40 damage.

     The origin of the fire is believed to have been the accidental ignition of some dye-wood which was placed near the flue of the boiler furnace.
