Fire-fighters battled for over an hour to extinguish a fire at a derelict building on Pickford Lane, DukinfieldĀ last night.(12 September)

The building was unoccupied and firefighters from Ashton-under-Lyne, Hyde and Stalybridge, used four breathing kits and two hose reels to tackle the blaze.

They also used a thermal imaging camera to find the source of the fire and any other hot spots to tackle the core of the blaze and ensure the fire was completely put out.

The incident was reported just before 8.00pm and the cause of the blaze is unknown.
