Firefighters tackled a fire at a takeaway on Bishopthorpe Road.

Crews from York, Acomb and Huntington were called out to the Rainbow House Chinese Takeaway at about 5pm today (Wednesday).

Smoke could be seen billowing out of the top of the two-storey building.

Firefighters said the oil fryer at the business was on fire. Two crews with breathing apparatus extinguished the fire.

Traffic was diverted away from the scene, but the road has since reopened.
