A CAR fire in Moston spread to a telegraph pole and a tree before firefighters brought it under control last night.

Crews from Middlewich and Sandbach were called to Dragons Lane at 11.43pm on Thursday, March 21, to reports of a blaze.

On arrival, they found a car well alight, with the fire having spread.

Two firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, used two hose reels to extinguish the fire.

A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots and a hose reel was then used to dampen down the area.
