Fire crews rush to tackle the blaze at a commercial property near the center of Bury
Fire crews rushed down a street near downtown Bury on Sunday afternoon after a fire broke out at a commercial property. Flames ripped through the brick building, on Manor Street, with clouds of smoke seen billowing from inside.
The road was cordoned off shortly before 4:30 p.m. as numerous fire engines and hose reels were used to douse the flames. The fire is a short distance from The Rock shopping centre.
Fire crews remained on site for several hours, with several fire engines parked along the road outside as they battled the blaze. It is believed to have burst into a one-story extension attached to an MOT garage.
