Cheadle car fire stopped by Sapphire staff
Our Highways team were on their way to a job for Stockport Council on Thursday 23rd September, waiting for a wagon to fill up on a hydrant.
A member of the team saw smoke coming from further down the road and decided to investigate to see if anyone needed help. It was then that they stumbled upon a blazing fire – a car located on a street full of shops and houses was on fire!
The team quickly drove their wagon to a safe distance within reach of the car and turned on their water unit hoses to put the fire out.
A paramedic was nearby and called the fire brigade while our teams continued to use their water hoses to try and put the fire out.
