This incident was more dramatic
than these pictures indicate, as I first noticed the smoke whilst still
in Prestwich almost 20 miles away!
Unfortunately by the time I found the incident, just before 2100, the light was fading dramatically.
About an hour into the incident, flames were still visible from the roof of the building.
Scania PN04KSF from Newton was hard at work in the distance.

Reserve Dennis L246STJ, with DG02WFY on the right and PN04KSF just visible on the left.
Reserve IMU PN04KSU was also in attendance.
