One engine turned up as the fire took hold at around 4pm, flames could be seen from Moss Lane, two firefighters could be seen tackling the blaze which could have been much worse had they been delayed due to traffic conditions.

It is thought that general rubbish was the cause of the fire.

We have since asked GMFRS (Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service) for more information on this incident.

The road was closed off for a time whilst the firemen worked on putting out the fire.
