At 6.46pm three fire engines, two from Eccles and one from Agecroft, attended a domestic address on Eccles Old Road, Salford, following reports of a fire in bedroom.

Upon arrival the fire was located on the first floor – the paper lampshade of a bedside light had caught.

GMFRS were at the address for roughly 25 minutes.
