Neighbours evacuated after house fire in Failsworth

Borough: Manchester

Incident Date: 04 May 2014

FIRE crews were called to a house fire in Failsworth this morning.

A number of people reported smoke coming from the roofs of three houses in Brown Street at around 9.30am.

On arrival firefighters found the area heavily smoke logged and after investigating discovered a serious fire on the first floor involving a landing and bedroom that had broken through to the loft.

The smoke had spread from the loft into the properties either side, so crews evacuated the neighbours and set up a cordon in the street outside.

They tackled the blaze from either side to bring it under control and stop it spreading further.

An investigation will look into the cause of the fire.
