Crew’s four hour fire fight

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

FIRE­FIGHT­ERS spent four hours bat­tling a blaze in Poyn­ton.

The crew from Poyn­ton were called to a chim­ney fire which spread to a loft space on Lower Park Cres­cent at 1.30am on Fri­day.

Two seats of fire were found, one in the loft and the other in the chim­ney stack.

Crews used spe­cial­ist equip­ment to cut away loft in­su­la­tion and chip board to get to the area.

Chim­ney rods which spray a mist of wa­ter were also used to ex­tin­guish that blaze.

A ther­mal imag­ing cam­era was em­ployed to check for spread of fire to neigh­bour­ing homes.

There were no re­ports of in­juries.
