THREE fire engines from Eccles and Irlam Fire Stations attended a factory fire where six cubic metres of wood chippings and sawdust had set alight.
Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said 15 firefighters raced to TBS Fabrications in Martens Road, Cadishead, at 11.45pm yesterday.
Once in attendance, crew wearing breathing apparatus extinguished a fire in a silo containing both wood chips and sawdust.
Their actions successfully prevented the fire from spreading through the ducting of the silo into the factory itself.
