House fire - Atherton
At 12.03pm on Tuesday (May 2) crews from Atherton, Leigh and Hindley were called to a house fire in Gloucester Street, Atherton.
A semi-detached house was heavily smoke logged and six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to extinguish a fire by 12.30pm.
No one was involved in the fire but unfortunately the house is uninhabitable.
A fire investigation has taken place and the cause of the fire was deliberate.
