FIREFIGHTERS across Warrington have been busy over the past 24 hours as five separate fire broke out.

Crews were first called to a jetty fire at midday yesterday, Tuesday on Moore Lane in Moore.

Two fire engines attended the scene on the Manchester Ship Canal close to Moore Nature Reserve and were there for more than three hours.

A barge later arrived to enable firefighters to also deal with the incident from the waterside.

Once the fire was extinguished crews cooled any hotspots.

Firefighters standing on the barge damped down three jetties to prevent reignition.

The fire is believed to have been started deliberately and anyone with any information should call police on 101, give the details or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Shortly after, crews were called to reports of a large straw fire at a farm on Tan House Lane, Burtonwood.

They used two water jets and a mechanical digger to fight the fire which took more than two hours.

In the early hours of this morning, Wednesday, one engine from Stockton Heath attended a small refuse fire in a wood on Lymm Road in Thelwall.

Crews used a hose to extinguish the flames.

At 1.30 am, two engines attended a house fire at a property on Watkin Street in Orford.

Crews found the fire was under the stairs and were at the scene for more than an hour.

This afternoon, firefighters are continuing to deal with a woodland fire in an area off Glazebrook Lane.

Crews attended the scene at 2.30pm and discovered a wooded area, approximately 30 metres square, which is still well alight.

The team are currently using two hoses to tackle the fire.
