Waste collection lorry catches fire in Altrincham

Bin men had a lucky escape this afternoon as something had caught fire at the back where all the rubbish is stored.

Its not known at this time what caused the fire, fire engines were called at just after 3pm on Manchester Road close to Cresta Court Hotel and managed to catch the fire before it got out of control, fire fighters managed to get all the rubbish out and onto the road, once the fire was out, all the rubbish was taken away in other vans and the area cleared.

The pavement was cordoned off for a time whilst fire fighters tackled the blaze, a spokesman at the scene tells us that no one was hurt in this incident and an investigation was under way ‘as to what started the fire’.
