'Mystery' fire at Trafford Park industrial site
1:48pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
FIREFIGHTERS were left baffled after a mystery fire at an industrial premise in Trafford Park.
Crews from Stretford and Sale fire stations were called to the ground floor of a disused industrial building on Ashburton Road at around 10pm, on August 24.
Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus put out the fire, which was contained to spraying booths in the 50x100 metre space, using a hose reel – but could not identify a cause.
No sign of deliberate ignition was found and as the building is not used, it is unlikely that the blaze began accidentally.
The cause of the fire was put down to self-combustion.
