House fire – Flixton

AT 6.24am on Wednesday, April 19, three crews from Sale, Stretford and Eccles were called to a fire at a house on Shaftesbury Gardens, Flixton.

On arrival crews found a fire contained to the kitchen of the property, extinguished the fire and used a fan to clear smoke.

The cause of the fire was accidental.

Watch Manager David Minto said: “Please remember to take care in the kitchen, as carelessness can put your life at risk.
