Emergency services were called to a fire in a Ripon dental studio in High Skellgate on Thursday, December 4.

Two fire crews from Ripon station were mobilised after a steam cleaning machine caught fire, producing smoke and acid fumes which clogged the upper floor.

Crews were forced to use breathing apparatus while removing the machine, before ventilating the property, and confirmed that nobody was in the property upon arrival.
