Fire near Urban Splash in Castlefield!!

PushON | June 16th 2008

OK, so not a huge story but it was exciting for us. There is more or less derelict building just down the road from us, broadly speaking within what is thought of as the Urban Splash development. Fire over Urban Splash SignThough I quickly add Urban Splash isn’t on fire before any lawyers ring up!! Anyhow, long story short: Lots of smoke, have a look. Fire Engines turn up and deal with it really quickly. I mean really really quickly. There were Fire Engines there almost before we noticed anything was wrong. That’s taxpayers money well spentFiremen through arch in Castlefield I take some pictures. Nobody hurt. Blog it. Photos published in less than an hour. It’s interesting to see how quick you can publish something vaguely topical. Will no doubt twitter this. The pictures are taken from various vantage points around the fire. You can find more via our Flickr feed. If you are that way inclined of course.
