Rubbish on fire - Farnworth
AT 5.47pm on April 6, 2017, two pumps from Farnworth and another from Bolton Central were called to reports of smoke coming from the window of a house in Buckley Lane, Farnworth.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus discovered a fire in the rear bathroom of the house involving a quantity of rubbish. Crews used one hose reel to extinguish the flames and cleared smoke from the property using a positive pressure fan.
It is believed the cause of the fire is deliberate and crews were detained for around 30 minutes.
