Firefighters spend the night fighting building fire

Borough: Salford

Incident Date: 04 December 2014

FIREFIGHTERS have spent the night fighting a large fire at a derelict farmhouse on Chaddock Lane, Worsley.

Crew from Salford, Bolton and Manchester stations were called to the blaze just before 9pm last night (Thursday, December 4, 2014).

The fire, which started on the first floor, had spread to the roof where flames could be seen coming out from the top of the building.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used three jets and thermal imaging equipment to extinguish the fire.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

A Local Authority dangerous buildings inspector was also requested to attend the scene due to the damage caused. 

Two fire engines remain on the scene this morning to ensure the fire is fully extinguished.
