AT 3.18pm on Tuesday, December 6, three fire engines, from Rochdale and Heywood, were sent to reports of a building fire in Cheetham Street.
The fire involved the first floor of the three-storey derelict pub, which measures around 10 metres by 10 metres.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to tackle the blaze, and a positive pressure fan to remove smoke from the building.
Firefighters were at the incidents for just under two hours.
The fire was started deliberately.
