FIREFIGHTERS have advised local residents to keep windows and doors shut as they tackle a garage fire on Textile Road, Manchester.
The incident is causing a large smoke plume, but crews at the scene have informed us that the fire is under control.
Six fire engines, four hose reel jets, six breathing apparatus and a high-rise platform are being used to contain the blaze, which we were called to around 4.45 am.
Station Manager Paul Smitham who is taking charge at the incident said: “the important thing now is that local residents keep all windows and doors shut to keep the smoke out and try and avoid the area if possible while we deal with the incident”.
