Commercial fire in Chorley

Date: 10/08/2019

Time: 20:44:00

Address: George Street, Chorley

Incident Number: 1908003730

Six fire engines from Lancashire and Greater Manchester were called to a fire involving a commercial garage on George Street, Chorley. Firefighters used jets and the stinger from Blackburn to extinguish the fire which is now under investigation. Cylinders were found by firefighters in the garage and as a result the electricity and gas were isolated to the property. This meant that local residents were also affected by a loss of power but it is hoped that they will be switched on again by the morning.
