Address: Broadhead Road, Turton, Bolton

Incident Number: 1810003870

Two fire engines and crews from Blackburn and one engine and crew from Bolton were assigned to a fire in a derelict building. Due to the distance of the fire from a water source a ‘water relay’ was set up to pump water from a fire engine nearest the source to another, then to the engine nearest the fire. Firefighters used a hosereel jet to extinguish the fire, the cause of which is to be established. There were no casualties or injuries to livestock.
