Read about two fires we went to below:
Kitchen fire – Droylsden
AT 12.22pm on Sunday, August 20, three crews from Philips Park, Stalybridge and Gorton were called to a fire at a house on Outram Square, Droylsden.
On arrival crews found a fire in the kitchen and used two breathing apparatus, a thermal imaging camera, specialist tools and a ventilation fan to extinguish it.
The cause of the fire was accidental.
Crews would like to remind people to take care when cooking, especially keeping ovens, hobs and grills clean as a build up of fat and grease can easily catch fire.
Firefighters were on the scene for approximately 30 minutes.
