House fire – Bolton
AT 15.04pm on Saturday, January 6, three fire engines from Bolton Central and Farnworth were called to a house fire in Lever Edge Lane, Bolton.
When firefighters arrived at the house they found the dining room well alight, with unattended candles causing the blaze to take hold and quickly spread. To bring the flames under control they used four breathing apparatus and two hose reels.
Once the fire was extinguished they used a ventilation fan to help clear the remaining smoke.
The cause of the fire was accidental and firefighters remained at the incident for just over one hour.
