Firefighters tackle blaze at derelict pub
Fire crews were called into action after a fire broke out at a former pub.
Engines from Hindley, Atherton and Leigh were called at around 7.22pm to a fire at the derelict Victoria pub on Kirkhall Lane in Leigh.
Crews used two hose reels and four breathing apparatus to tackle the fire, which involved a large quantity of rubbish on the ground floor, and cleared smoke from the building with a positive pressure fan.
Firefighters were at the scene for around thirty five minutes.
