House fire – Gorton

AT 20.37pm on Friday, February 23, three fire engines from Gorton and Ashton under Lyne were called to a house fire in Friendship Avenue, Gorton.

On arrival firefighters found a log burner fire had spread, igniting nearby materials. Crews quickly led one person out of the building to safety, whilst using two breathing apparatus and a hose reel to extinguish the fire. They then used a ventilation fan to clear the remaining smoke.

Firefighters were at the incident for 55 minutes.
