A PRINTING and dyeing works in Adlington had to be evacuated this afternoon after a machine caught fire.

 

Crews from Horwich and Chorley fire stations were called to the Pincroft Dyeing and Printing works, in Market Street, shortly after 1pm to reports that one of their wrapping machines was involved in a blaze.

 

The premises were evacuated and the fire was contained to just one machine, which was badly damaged.

 

Fire service watch manager Glyn McGann said: "The sprinklers were activated and we used thermal imaging cameras and fans to help extinguish the remainder of the fire and make the premises safe for the workers to return inside.

 

"There was some fire damage to the equipment, but it was contained to the one machine, which is approximately five by ten metres across."
