A huge fire is raging through a disused factory on Dalton industrial estate near Thirsk.
The police and fire service were alerted just before 3pm today.
It believed there wasn't anyone in the building at the time of the fire and there have been no reports of any injuries.
Local residents have been urged to stay indoors with the windows closed, to avoid a large cloud pall of smoke.
The A168 which runs past the estate has also been closed in both directions.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said:
"It is not believed that anyone was in the building at the time of the fire and there have been no reports of any injuries connected to the incident."
