Incident Date: 17 November 2016
At 11.35am a crew from Sale, Eccles and Salford attended a fire in the kitchen of a house on Montrose Avenue, Stretford, which was caused by an unattended grill.
Four firefighters in breathing apparatus used hose reels and high pressure fans to extinguish the blaze and a mother and child who live in the home escaped before the crew arrived.
Firefighters used a thermal imaging camera to ensure the blaze hadn’t spread and were at the scene for around fifty minutes.
