Fire engines from Crewe, Congleton, Sandbach, Alsager and Middlewich

A narrow boat was on fire on the canal by the Broughton Arms. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus began to tackle the fire using hose reel jets.  Cylinders were removed from the boat but there were diesel tanks on board. Crews had to pump out the vessel and used a thermal imaging camera to check there were no further areas of heat. Crews then dampened down the area and pumped water from the narrow boat.
