Manchester Flour Mill save: 7th October 2015

October 16, 2015

At just after 09:30 on Wednesday 7th October, Greater Manchester F&RS mobilised five appliances to a report of fire at Rank-Hovis flour mills in Trafford Park, Manchester. The managers at the site reported a very rapid fire service response.

 

On arrival, fire was observed in machinery in the pellet press area and ducting on several levels.  It is reported that hose-reels were used to extinguish the fire(s).

 

Fire-fighters were greatly assisted as 7 heads activated on the mill's sprinkler system , as did fire dampers in the locality, contributing significantly to controlling the fire prior to their arrival.

 

Due to the combined work of the active systems and fire service actions the plant is reported to have been back in full production after a few days.
