Incident Date: 08 September 2016
FIREFIGHTERS are currently dealing with a fire at a building on Kings Road in Ashton-under-Lyne.
Updated: 9am, Thursday, September 8.
We were called at 6.45am this morning, Thursday, September 8, after reports of a fire on both floors of the 25 metre by 30 metre building.
Crew have so far used two breathing kits, three jets and a hydraulic platform and the fire is now under control. Cordons have been set up and adjoining properties are being checked by fire service personnel.
Kings Road is currently closed and traffic is therefore heavy around the Hurst Cross area. Therefore please avoid if possible.
