Neighbours spot fire and raise alarm

FIRE crews were called to a blaze after the back door of a house was set alight.

The fire, which is being treated as deliberate, started at about 8pm last Thursday and although the house, in Wigan Road, Leigh was occupied at the time it was neighbours who spotted the blaze and raised the alarm.

Luckily crews arrived early enough to stop the fire spreading and the blaze was contained to the back door and guttering.
