FIREFIGHTERS worked throughout the night tackling a blaze.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to Antrobus yesterday following reports of a roof on fire.

Four engines - from Warrington, Birchwood and Lymm as well as Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service - arrived at Caldwell's Gate Lane at around 4.19pm.

Crews have been at the scene ever since.

A spokesperson for CFRS said: "A building fire involved the roof space of a property.

"Firefighters in breathing apparatus initially tackled the blaze from the outside.

"The scene was sectorised and firefighters made their way inside to check fire spread internally.

"The crews stopped the fire from spreading to the main part of the building by isolating it at source.

"Tiles were removed and the affected area dampened down.

"Temperature readings were taken with a thermal imaging camera, with high temperatures being recorded in a first floor bedroom.

"Firefighters exposed the ceiling for further investigation.

"They found small pockets of fire which they dampened down.

"Crews continued to monitor hotspots overnight and relief fire engines are now at the scene."

It is understood neither Cheshire Police nor North West Ambulance Service were called to the scene and that no one was hurt.
